ClubsNSW Axe The Tax
- The Honourable The Speaker & Members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales
A petition against NSW Treasurer Egan's proposed increase in Poker Machine Tax.
The Petition of Resident of NSW:
This petition brings to the attention of the House that the increase in the Poker Machine Tax (to be effective from 1st September 2004) will have a disasterous effect on the people and residents of NSW, ranging from lost employment, loss of business to industry and suppliers, loss of Junior and Senior Sporting facilities, decreased support for Senior Citizens, the aged and infirm - all of whom rely on Clubs for employment, income, entertainment, social activity, sporting facilities, meeting venues, support for the aged, infrastructure for emergency servuces and ongoing community welfare and safety.
The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly to seriously reconsider the decision to increase Poker machine Tax and that the status quo in relation to exisitng Poker Machine Tax and GST remain in place.
