The Committee adopted an inquiry into online gambling and its impacts on problem gamblers on 15 September 2022, following a referral from the Minister for Social Services, the Hon Amanda Rishworth MP.
On 12 October 2022, the Committee amended the inquiry title and terms of reference to ensure the language of the inquiry is inclusive to support people with lived experience of gambling harm to participate. The Minister supported these changes.
The Committee is seeking written submissions, ideally of no more than ten pages, from individuals and organisations providing recommendations relating to any or all of the inquiry terms of reference by Friday, 11 November 2022.
If you have any questions about the inquiry or the process of making a submission, please contact the secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
