Around 1,500 newsagents and other small businesses will face financial hardship and possible closure when the current Agency Protection Period expires in April. 

The threat of major supermarket chains being able to sell lottery products for the first time in NSW is undermining the viability of our local newsagencies.

A NSW Labor Government will enact laws that will protect local newsagents and continue restricting outlets selling lottery products to newsagencies and other small businesses.

Labor will:

1. Preserve the current newsagency protections until a new agreement is reached.

2. Continue to restrict outlets that sell lottery products, to newsagencies and other small businesses only.

3.Work with local newsagents and private operators to ensure a sensible commercial arrangement that is fair all round.
