“The Gambling Commission and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) held a joint consultation between July and September this year reviewing proposals for Commission fees, which would take effect in 2017.
The consultation response can be found here.
36 consultation responses were received from stakeholders including trade associations, licensed gambling operators and from members of the public.
Three main options were provided for consultation but the changes preferred by the Commission were:
Following the consultation, the draft Gambling (Operating Licence and Single-Machine Permit Fees)(Consolidation) Regulations 2017 will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.
The Regulations will be subject to the negative resolution procedure in Parliament and would come into force on 6 April 2017”.
