Move to eventually get rid of pokies

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington City Council is moving to eventually gte rid of pokie machines in the city.
Barring any last-minute changes of heart, a Wellington City Council committee will agree to the policy, meaning all existing pokie machine venues can keep operating, but no new permits will be issued and, over time, this will theoretically lead to fewer gambling machines.
The "sinking lid policy" is being driven by Cr Tabatha Paul.
If the eventual drop-off in pokie machines led to community groups getting less funding, Paul said it would be time for the central government to step in.
