Gaming bill: DA plans a change

2010-12-01 00:00

THE KwaZulu-Natal Gaming and Betting Tax Bill was unanimously passed in the provincial legislature yesterday

Chairperson of the Premier’s Portfolio Committee Sipho Gcabashe said the bill aims to regulate the gaming and horse-racing industry in the province and assist in the transformation of horse racing with the adminsitration of a transformation betting fund.

Radley Keys said the DA welcomed the finalisation of the bill and supported its enactment. However, it has one reservation — with one section of the bill (S32) that allows a person convicted of a crime of dishonesty to be employed in the gaming industry. Keys said the DA will consider introducing an amendment when the bill is an act.
