Caborn hands gambling responsibilities to Lord McIntosh
By dave
Rumours are circulating that DCMS minister Richard Caborn

has relinquished control of his gambling responsibilities

in the recent government reshuffle to Lord McIntosh of

Haringey. According to Steve Donoughue of the Gambling

Consultancy, Caborn will continue taking the Tote and

horse racing measures forward, but former education

secretary Estelle Morris will now take charge of the

National Lottery with the rest of the gambling industry

handled by Lord McIntosh.

What this means for the industry is unclear at the moment.

While it could demonstrate the reduction in importance in

the Gambling Bill as McIntosh is the most junior of the

DCMS' parliamentarians it could also signal the

department's intention to start the Bill in the House of

Lords, circumventing the packed legislative timetable in

the Commons.
