ARB Chairman Comments 5: Action Required On Wagering Issues

Thursday, 9th July 2009

Following the Productivity Commission inquiry into gambling in Australia, ARB chairman Bob Bentley also called for, "...much-needed action on some fundamental wagering issues, including totalisator odds bookmaking. The ARB is not going to throw in the towel and allow corporate bookmakers to line their pockets at the expense of industry participants... We need to be able to demonstrate that the industry itself is doing everything it can to operate in an efficient and business-like manner. Governments can be persuaded to take action but only where the industry itself is dynamic and doing everything it can to help itself. Modern society is in a constant state of change, and racing cannot be cocooned away from this."
