|The publication of the Government’s paper ‘Future Regulation of Remote Gambling’ has been enthusiastically received by the Interactive Gambling, Gaming and Betting Association (iGGBA).|
The paper sets out public policy relating to the remote gambling industry. iGGBA has expressed support for the Government’s continuing commitment to creating a regulatory environment in the UK, which will enable a successful remote gambling and gaming industry to develop in the UK.
The paper sets out clear objectives which will underpin the forthcoming Gambling Bill and other subsequent regulations.
Andrew Tottenham, chair of iGGBA commented on the paper saying, “The publication of the policy guidelines provides further, welcome evidence of the Government’s commitment to provide a regulatory framework within which the industry in the UK can develop under the law.”
“iGGBA is committed to working closely with DCMS to ensure that proposed regulations – especially in areas of social responsibility, such as under-age gambling-is informed, through iGGBA, by first-hand knowledge of operators.”
iGGBA will be working closely with the Government and Parliament as the legislative process associated with the proposed Gambling Bill unfolds.
