FUNCTION LICENCES BEING ISSUED

16 September 1999

Thomas George was pleased, after raising the issue of function licences in Parliament today, to be informed by the Minister for Gaming and Racing that industrial action undertaken by his Department has now been resolved.

This will be to the immense satisfaction of many charity and non-profit organisations who are anxiously awaiting advice on the processing of applications lodged at the local court house.

Local organisers of the Lismore River City Music Festival, North Coast National and Nimbin Shows have previously requested assistance in seeking urgent consideration of their function licence applications for upcoming events.

"I suggest to any organisation that has submitted a function licence application to immediately reapply regardless of previous advice received" Thomas George concluded.
