Title Interview with Charles Livingstone about Andrew Wilkie Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ABC Radio Canberra Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size ~ 10 mins Country Australia Date 5/12/17 Description Interview with problem gambling researcher Dr Charles Livingstone about Independent MP Andrew Wilkie calling for the
Raiders club to reimburse addicted gambler Laurie Brown after she lost $226,050 over 18 months at their Belconnen club.
Livingstone says the clubs claim they give back money, but they hardly ever do, and they never refuse service to problem
gamblers, in fact they go out of their way to make the gamblers feel more comfortable and make sure they don't have to
leave, bringing them food and drink. Livingstone says the most the clubs do is suggest the gamblers take a break. Livingstone
says real measures need to be put into place to stop the clubs preying on problem gamblers, and suggests a limit of $100 a
day for every gambler. Livingstone says if you want to understand gambling addiction read Addiction by Design by Natasha
Schull. Livingstone says the banks have to take responsibility as well.
