FOR – Interactive Gambling Amendment (Credit and Other Measures) Bill 2023 - Consideration in Detail - Other amendments

The majority voted against amendments introduced by Wentworth MP Allegra Spender (Independent), which means they failed.

What did the amendments do?

Ms Spender explained that:

The amendments I'm moving today have six objectives, but the overarching purpose is to draw attention to the fact that the bill has real room for improvement. ... I do not object to the changes being made by the bill and will happily support it, because we need to stop credit cards being used for gambling, but the bill could have and should have gone much further and delivered more of the changes the community wants to see from this government on gambling.
