The federal government has defended the time it has taken to work through the recommendations of the ‘You Win Some, You Lose More’ report into online wagering, but gave no clear timeline on when it expects to respond.

Social Services Minister Amanda Rishworth said the details of the 31 recommendations made by the parliamentary committee, led by the late Labor MP Peta Murphy, last June, were still being considered, including a ban on advertising of online gambling as well as a ban on inducements by wagering operators.     

"We're obviously taking what was a very important House of Representatives report seriously," Rishworth told the ABC.

"There were many recommendations – I think there were 32 (sic) recommendations, advertising was one of those recommendations. To respond in a fulsome way, we need to take our time to do that."
