CWA launches policy on pokies while Labor goes into hiding

Labor’s policy-free zone is becoming an absolute farce.

While Rebecca White and her team have completely vanished since Parliament finished, the Liberals have outlined major commitments to build new schools, lift education outcomes, build new Spirit of Tasmania vessels and invest in new road infrastructure.

Today, the CWA is outlining its view on pokies.  It says a lot about Rebecca White’s leadership that she is still unable to state where Labor stands on this important issue.

Our position is clear: we will reduce the number of pokies in the community but we also support individual choice, and the regional pubs and clubs and the jobs they support.
