Motion text

That this House is concerned about the proposed alterations to the gaming laws which will restrict the cash jackpot payout from the gaming machines in members' and proprietary clubs; is further concerned about the effect that this will have on the incomes of these clubs; notes many clubs depend on the revenues generated by the jackpot machines; further notes that many of such clubs are non-profit making and the income from machines allows them to charge competitive prices and pay staff wages; further notes that the arguments over under 18s playing these machines are erroneous, as the rules are strictly adhered to and often membership of such clubs is restricted to over 18s; and further notes that any alteration to the legislation will have the knock on effects of loss of staff and services for the clubs and facilities for the community.
