ARB Chairman Comments 4: Mergers A "Case-by-Case" Issue

Thursday, 9th July 2009

While refusing to pass comment on the proposed merger of the 2 Sydney Clubs, the AJC & STC, ARB chairman Bob Bentley commented, "Industry structures were one of the things that people should be prepared to discuss rationally and constructively. (The merger) made sense... in Brisbane but other mergers need to be examined on a case-by-case basis. However, what I will say is that our future industry structures must be on the agenda for review. We need to be on the front foot and making positive and mature decisions as an industry to place ourselves in the best position to survive and prosper. In doing this there are no 'holy cows' that cannot be discussed."
