Premier Mike Baird confirms the enquiry into the Sydney lockout laws will investigate the casinos

Premier Mike Baird has confirmed it's going to be tough to change his mind about Sydney's lockout law but the independent review will make the decision about what happens next.

Following mounting criticism in recent weeks Mike Baird has spoken about the independent review of Sydney's lockout laws and confirmed to Fitzy & Wippa the current casino exclusions would be thoroughly investigated. The Premier has come under fire for his strict Sydney CBD lockout laws excluding The Star casino and Barangaroo with many speculating it's because of the revenue funneled into the economy. 

"We take the response from the police and where they are seeing the violence and the concerns. We are open to measures that may need to be taken as part of this review" 

Watch the full chat below which includes a debate with Tyson from Keep Sydney Open. 

The person appointed to lead the independent review is set to be announced shortly with the community encourage to voice their opinions.
