Senator RHIANNON (New South Wales) (20:53): I move Greens amendment on sheet 8056 standing in my name: At the end of the motion, add:
", but the Senate notes this Bill is likely to lead to an expansion of the Australian gambling market through in-play betting in TABs, clubs and licenced premises and questions the rationale for such an approach in light of Labor and Liberal parties having received $10,460,819 in political donations from gambling interests over the past ten years.".
Original question, as amended, agreed to.
Bill read a second time.
