Gutwein Preparing to Roll Over to Federal

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Teasury spokesperson

In Parliament today, Treasurer Peter Gutwein made it clear he is prepared to do Federal Hotels' bidding and extend the destructive gambling monopoly deal beyond 2018.

The Treasurer is using MONA’s desire to establish a boutique, high-rollers casino as a Trojan horse to extend the Federal monopoly deal which was negotiated and signed in secret back in 2003.

The odds are already stacked against patrons who play the pokies, and with those machines malfunctioning the losses are set to be even greater.

The latest machine malfunction debacle comes on the back of almost $180 million worth of losses by Tasmanians on the pokies over the last year.

As a result of the deal struck with Federal Hotels, State coffers are being boosted to the detriment of the Tasmanian public.
