Lee Rhiannon 24 Mar 2017

Monday, 20 March 2017

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.".

Question negatived.

Original question, as amended, agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
