Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey has praised work done by Ceduna locals following news that the Cashless Debit Card (CDC) trial will be extended into two new locations.  

The Government has secured support to roll out the debit card in the Bundaberg and Hervey Bay regions as soon as next year, expanding on the existing trial sites in Ceduna, East Kimberly and the more latterly added Kalgoorlie. 

Mr Ramsey said the news is confirmation of the worth of the pioneering work the residents of the Ceduna area have done in proving to the nation the community value of the card.

Mr Ramsey declared the Card trial an overwhelming success stating that In Ceduna, there has been significant reductions in drug use, alcohol consumption and gambling since the card was introduced.
