In 2016, MRT contributed a submission to the Tasmanian Government enquiry into Poker Machines in Tasmania - you can read the submission here.
The renewal of licenses and implementation of the Liberal Governments agenda from the 2018 election is likely to come up on the agenda in Parliament in coming weeks. MRT has been an active supporter of the the Community Voice on Pokies Reform. Now is potentially the last opportunity we have to influence the impact of Poker Machines in Tasmania for 20 years. For more information on recommended actions to take from here, please read this letter sent to CVOP members.
We would certainly encourage you to write to your local member, with some of the ideas and suggestions to ensure harm from poker machines is reduced as much as possible.
