The Lottery Corporation Submission

Dear Senator,

The Lottery Corporation appreciates the opportunity to provide a submission to the Standing Committee on Environment and Communications (the Committee) inquiry into the Interactive Gambling Amendment (Credit and Other Measures) Bill 2023 (the Inquiry).

In short, this submission urges the committee to support the Bill in its current form – as recommended by the most recent Parliamentary Joint Committee inquiry – retaining the exemption of lotteries in recognition of their low-harm nature and the potential for negative impacts on newsagents and other retailers if the ban were to be extended to lotteries products.
