Mission Australia recently made a submission to the Tasmanian Joint Select Committee Inquiry into Future Gaming Markets. We argued that gambling can be extremely harmful for individuals affected by gambling, and for their families, and advocated that Tasmania remove all pokies from hotels and clubs and continue counselling and other supports for people harmed by gambling.
Mission Australia's submission to the National Ice Taskforce
Mission Australia welcomes the Productivity Commission Inquiry into Public Infrastructure. Mission Australia considers public infrastructure, including social and affordable housing, as central to enabling participation and growth in our communities.
Mission Australia sees potential to deliver efficiencies in the delivery of government services, but advocates the need to support the most disadvantaged if we are to avoid further social and welfare costs in the longer term.
In the context of this review, Mission Australia submits that any equivalent state regulation is receptive to the possibility of national harmonisation and considers practices adopted in other states, particularly those that reflect the principles canvassed in this submission response.
