“The Government has today published the long awaited White Paper outlining extensive proposals on changes to gambling regulation in Great Britain.
The Department for Culture Media and Sport published its call for evidence in December 2020 and it has been a long journey since then, with changes at the helm of government, multiple gambling ministers, and changes at the head of the Gambling Commission, but finally here we are – the White Paper has been published.
The headline proposals;
The proposals will be subject to further consultation, either by Government, where the amendment is by secondary legislation, or by the Gambling Commission where the changes can be affected through the Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice. Some proposals require changes to primary legislation, such as the introduction of CIAs by local authorities and will therefore be subject to parliamentary time.
The White Paper can be found here
It’s worth also noting topics not in the White Paper – there is no blanket ban on advertising gambling or on VIP schemes
Further detailed articles on the proposals will follow. Trade turns to Poppleston Allen for comment, read now.
