I see the harm gambling addiction does to families every day. I worked with the Problem Gambling Foundation to help introduce a "no more pokies" policy in our city (you might have seen me on their advertisements). I believe communities deserve much more of a say in the location and number of gambling outlets in their area.

I support a sinking lid policy for gaming machines so that all communities in New Zealand meet an equal and acceptable ratio per head of population. Gaming locations should not be located near residential areas, schools, churches and community places.

I agree that gambling poses a serious problem within some communities and would be keen to explore all ideas that might lead to a reduction in these very saddening statistics.
