Statement from the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner

In light of the Prime Minister's announcements of Wednesday 18 March and today with respect to capacities for non-essential gatherings to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, I have determined to cancel the current trading round. 

The trading round was gazetted on 23 January 2020 and trading day was set to be Monday 23 March 2020. 

It became apparent to me that there was a foreseeable risk that impacts on this industry may change the financial position of those who sought to purchase entitlements in the trading round.

CBS will be refunding all administration fees and will be returning any payments received.
