Government has until 3pm tomorrow to respond to Video Games inquiry
Today the senate passed a motion directing the government to provide its response to the unanimous findings of the Environment and Communications References Committee report, Game on: more than playing around, The future of Australia’s video game development industry.
Senator James McGrath said in response to the motion, “The committee report made eight recommendations that impact a number of portfolios and, as such, requires careful consideration and development of a whole-of-government response.”
The government received the inquiry report on 29 April 2016, they have had nearly 14 months to respond. The statement made today by Senator McGrath suggests the government will not meet the deadline, at which time the Minister will be compelled to provide the senate an explanation.
