Finance and the Economy Minister
Larry Howai will present the Finance
Bill 2014 for debate when the Senate
meets this morning.
The legislation, which was approved
in the House of Representatives last
week, seeks to amend several pieces of
legislation including, the Gambling and
Betting Act, the Registration of Clubs
Act, the Municipals Corporation Act,
the Litter Act, the State Lands Act, and
the Electronic Transactions Act, 2011.
The explanatory note to the bill said
Clause 2 seeks to amend the Gambling
and Betting Act in section 10 by defining
amusement games as electro-mechan-
ically arcade machines, by imposing

Clause 3 of the Bill seeks to amend
the Registration of Clubs Act in section
23 by requiring the Board of Inland Rev-
enue to issue a tag for machines in
respect of which taxes have been paid,
and by requiring the secretary of any
club to display that tag subject to can-
cellation of the club s certificate and a
penalty of 15 per cent interest on and
in addition to the tax payable.
The note said that clause would also
require the Secretary of a club to deposit
a sum of $500,000 in the Treasury as
a guarantee in respect of any claims
that may arise.
The annual report of First Citizens
for 2013 is expected to be laid by Howai.
