Gambling Amendment Bill (No 3)

Proposed amendments

Hon Peter Dunne, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 6A

Replace clause 6A (page 6, lines 15 to 21) with:

6A Section 33 amended (Status of New Zealand Racing Board and racing clubs)

After section 33(2), insert:

(3)

However, a class 4 venue licence may not be issued to the New Zealand Racing Board or a racing club if another corporate society (other than the New Zealand Racing Board or that racing club)—

(a)

holds a class 4 venue licence for the venue; or

(b)

held a class 4 venue licence for the venue at any time during the 5-year period immediately before the date on which the application for the licence is made.

Clause 18

In new section 371(1)(dd), delete “in connection with class 4 gambling at the venue” (page 15, line 33).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Gambling Amendment Bill (No 3). The amendment to clause 6A replaces the proposed new section 33(3) to clarify that a class 4 venue licence may not be issued to the New Zealand Racing Board or a racing club if another corporate society holds a class 4 venue licence for the venue or held a class 4 venue licence for the venue at any time during the 5-year period immediately before the date on which the application for the licence is made. The amendment to clause 18 removes from new section 371(1)(dd) the phrase “in connection with class 4 gambling at the venue” to ensure that regulations may also be made to prevent corporate societies from making payments to venue operators for matters that are not connected to class 4 gambling at the venue.
