Labor has today released correspondence with Greg Farrell in the interests of openness and transparency.
The correspondence confirms Labor’s intention to negotiate a new casino license for Wrest Point and the Country Club beyond 2023.
The term of a new license, including duration, fees and taxation will be informed by independent advice from Treasury. Labor is not prepared to fetter the independence of Treasury by setting parameters for that advice.
I want to reassure employees at Wrest Point and the Country Club that their jobs are not at risk.
