One purpose of the Bill is to streamline the regulation of gambling, so that it is consistent

across all forms of gambling. Until now, gambling regulation has operated separately and differently for different forms of gambling. The Bill will introduce consistency by means of a regulatory mechanism. The product of that is that we need a single definition of gambling that is regulated by the Bill.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 3, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
