New Clause 14 — Self-exclusion for remote gambling

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Health – in the House of Commons at 2:30 pm on 26th November 2013.

Alert me about debates like this

‘After section 89(1) (remote operating licence) of the Gambling Act 2005, insert—

“( ) The Commission shall hold a list of persons who have registered to be excluded from remote gambling.

( ) It shall be a condition of a remote operating licence that an operator must exclude any person who has registered for self-exclusion with the Commission.”.’. —(Jim Shannon.)

This New Clause would give the power for the Commission to hold a list of those who wish to self-exclude. It would be a condition of a remote operating licence that individuals on the list must be excluded.

Brought up, and read the First time.
