NZ Government Announces Next Step of Gambling Review

The New Zealand Government has announced the next stages of their review into gambling with Internal Affairs Minister Hon Peter Dunne announcing the decisions already taken by government that affect the class four gambling sector.

Mr Dunne announced that the government will go ahead with the review of the class four pokies sectors as was laid out at the Hospitality New Zealand’s annual general meeting last year. As part of the review, the Department of Internal Affairs will set out proposals to examine the sustainability of community funding from class four gambling in the future. A public discussion document will be developed and released later in the year.

“The class four sector is a valuable source of community funding, and we will be looking at proposals to future-proof that funding,” stated Mr Dunne. “We will be talking to the sector about the challenges, and how to address them. That work will form the basis of the public discussion document exploring ways to maintain community funding from class four gambling.”

Community funding from class four gambling has declined in the past decade with the sector contributing $262 million to local community causes in 2015, a 33 percent drop from the amount contributed in 2004. There have been a combination of reasons over the years that have been identified to have contributed to this.

Mr Dunne said that part of the consultation process will aim to identify a low-cost regulatory framework that will promote sustainable fundraising to benefit communities around New Zealand, while at the same time minimising harm related to gambling activities.

The discussion document is expected to be presented to the Cabinet by the end of May 2016, at which point the public will be invited to submit on the proposals.
