Independent Member for Clark, Andrew Wilkie, asked Prime Minister Anthony Albanese the following in Question Time. Please check against delivery.
Prime Minister the Productivity Commission recommends mandatory poker machine pre-commitment to address gambling addiction; and the New South Wales Crime Commission recommends the system be cashless to reduce money laundering.
To that end, and to their great credit, the Tasmanian and New South Wales governments have committed to mandatory cashless pre-commitment poker machine cards.
Prime Minister this is a watershed moment. Will you seize it, will you take the lead and drive deep reform nationally?
