Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Gambling (Gambling Harm Reduction) Amendment Bill, which as currently drafted does not require corporate societies to account for the distribution of proceeds from gambling or the remuneration paid to individual trustees or directors of societies.

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Bill to require corporate societies to provide this information to the Department and requires the Department to publish this information within 10 working days of receipt.
