Australasian Gambling Advisory Group Formed

The panel to consist of 22 experts

The Australian Government appointed twenty-two specialists who will form a new expert panel whose role is to provide advice on the government’s gambling reforms. The panel, officially called The Ministerial Expert Advisory Group on Gambling, will be chaired by Professor Peter Shergold AC, and it will strive to assist the Government to pass and apply new gambling reforms, as well as offer expert and technical application advice.

Those 22 specialists, who now make up this expert panel team, come from different areas, such as:

• gambling problem counseling and support services;

• hotels, casinos, gaming machine manufacturers and clubs;

• the Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Union; as well as

• various institutions that conduct research about gambling problem behaviour and harm minimisation measures.

Here are some of the crucial issues that this group, which is due to have its first meeting in early November, will engage in: the application of the best practice, full pre-commitment scheme on poker machines, the roll out of poker machine dynamic warning and cost of play displays and establishing ATM withdrawal limits in venues with poker machines (excluding casinos). They will use the most recent gambling evidence as a guidance, and in some cases receive advice from other stakeholders.

The Ministerial Expert Advisory Group consists of:

Chair: Professor Peter Shergold AC, Macquarie Group Foundation Professor, Centre for Social Impact, University of NSW.
