[AusRace] Calls for ANOTHER POC tax for Aus Racing

Hi all,

In case you’re not aware, there’s much industry lobbying and consternation about the Australian Sports Commission’s review of how to fund Australian Sport into the future (eg, Olympic Athletes, etc).

The easy (but flawed) suggestion is to copy the UK’s Lottery concept. But that has major issues in Australia. 

And now the lottery agents association is saying tax wagering with a new POC tax, not cannibalise us by bringing in a new lottery.

However, since the racing industry is suffering from a lack of public goodwill due to the excessive online betting company promotion of recent years, a new POC would probably have general public support at the detriment of the industry and operators.

I’ve written and put this solution to the Australian Sports Commission during their consultation phase.

It will bring back the goodwill, grow the industry, attract new participants and create punters for the future. 

Time the industry worked together to ensure racing's future.

Cheers, Greg.
