NSW government declines to support pokie reforms
The inquiry was called for by Christian Democrat senator Fred Nile as a concession to his support of James Packer opening a casino at Barangaroo on Sydney Harbour. But the LNP government has announced it will not be supporting any of the inquiry’s recommendations.
Greens MP John Kaye, an inquiry member, criticised the inquiry, saying that the reforms rejected by the government had already been watered down at every stage of the process. Mr Kaye pointed to an October 2014 Memorandum of Understanding between Clubs NSW and the LNP prohibiting the government from making any changes to existing gaming machine laws.
