About the Gaming Review
A comprehensive Review of Gaming in New Zealand was announced by the Minister of Internal Affairs on 23 June 2000.
The Review will facilitate Parliamentary decisions on gaming policy and subsequent implementation of the policy through legislative change.
This site is intended to provide information about the Review and its progress, and an avenue for making submissions.
The Review is managed by a team within the Policy Group in the Department of Internal Affairs.
About the Gaming Review Cabinet Papers Database
The Minister of Internal Affairs has directed the Department to post the Cabinet papers and minutes on the Gaming Review on its website. This database gives you access to the Cabinet papers and minutes on the Gaming Review. These papers are released consistent with the Official Information Act 1982. A small amount of information has been withheld under section 9 of the Act. We have indicated clearly in each paper where material has been deleted and why.
Some issues are still being considered by Cabinet. Papers will be added to this list as decisions are finalised.
Please note that these are Cabinet papers, not Departmental papers, and that they appear on the Department's Gaming Review website for reasons of convenience, because it will be helpful for interested people to find all the Gaming Review material in one place.
Some of these documents have been reformatted as part of the process of putting them on our website. There may be some minor differences in layout (eg font or page breaks) to the paper documents that Cabinet considered. There are no differences in content.
To read a paper, click on the highlighted title below. The papers are all in .pdf format. You need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. You can download a free version from the Adobe site. They are listed in date order, with the earliest at the top. The Department designed a "road map" to show the overall sequencing of the 30 papers Ministers took to Cabinet Committees. Click here to view road map document.

POL refers to the Cabinet Policy Committee
EXG refers to the Cabinet Committee on Government Expenditure and Administration
CAB refers to Cabinet
In general, a Cabinet paper is first considered by a Cabinet Committee, which makes decisions, then by Cabinet, which confirms or alters the decisions of the Committee. Some Gaming Review papers were referred back to Committee by Cabinet, so there can be several minutes that relate to the same papers. Where this has occurred, we have attached the relevant paper, to make it easier to follow the decisions, although this means that the same papers appear in several places.
