Please send only one copy of your submission.

Please note the Ministry would prefer to receive your submission in an electronic format.

Consultation meetings

To inform you about the proposals, and to help you to make your written submission, the Ministry is holding meetings as set out in the Meeting schedule below.

Except for the consumer hui which are for people affected by gambling harm and their support services, you are welcome to attend a meeting that is most convenient for you. However the focus of each meeting is on the stakeholders listed.

At the meetings, the Ministry will speak about its draft Strategy and levy proposals and describe the process for making submissions. You are welcome to ask questions about the Strategy and provide comments if you wish. For the meetings on 20–22 August we will bring hard copies of the consultation document to those meetings. 

Please note we are not expecting you to provide substantive feedback at these meetings and there will be time after the meeting to make a submission.

Please RSVP by 27 August by emailing gamblingharm@moh.govt.nz  and say which meeting you are attending.
