Talks begin on cashless card

Written on the 25 March 2017

Official talks have started on the possibility of expanding the cashless debit card trial into Broome.

A Federal Department of Social Services officer was in town earlier this month for discussions with community leaders, liquor outlets and various organisations.

Most generally supported the measure but some questions were raised over its implementation.

The DSS officer intends to return to town shortly to continue consultations.

During his visit, the senior bureaucrat spoke with high-ranking staff and councillors from the Shire of Broome and the Broome Liquor Accord.

The Kimberley Regional Group, which represents four local governments including Halls Creek, Derby/West Kimberley and Wyndham/East Kimberley, was also involved in the talks.
