Lord Storey: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to prevent children and young people becoming addicted to gambling.
Rachael Hamilton: ...place on which local businesses on the high street have to rely. RBS failed to realise that post offices cannot provide the full range of services that the bank provided, and, most worrying, took a gamble when it assumed that the post office would pick up the slack in the aftermath of bank closures.
Lord Chadlington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what education is provided in schools about the potential adverse mental health risks associated with gambling.

Gambling Advertising - Question
Maria Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he is taking to ensure that category B4 gaming machines are not placed in areas outside of locations permitted by the Gambling Commission; and if he will make a statement.
Louise Haigh: .... The Digital Economy Bill Committee, which passed verification measures, received draft guidance to help us scrutinise that Bill. I do think there is repetition in the comparison with online gambling, because online gambling sites are required to prove that their customers are over 18 through their sales. That is set in legislation, and I see no reason why that cannot be mirrored in the...
Louise Haigh: ...does not hold water because the issue with age verification there is that there is no connection to an online sale in that Act, but there is in the Bill. That is why the age verification for online gambling is a good standard and should have been replicated in the Bill, because it is connected to a sale. For example, a bank can verify whether an individual is over 18. That does not get us...
Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: Perhaps I should declare an interest as chairman of a bank. Is my noble friend surprised that debt problems are growing when our daytime television is filled with ads for gambling and loans at exorbitant APRs?
Carolyn Harris: It would appear that suicides as a result of gambling addiction are not recorded as such by coroners’ officers. Will the Leader of the House consult ministerial colleagues and ask them to work with the Office for National Statistics to establish an inquiry as to how we can best gather this data so that we can measure the true impact of gambling addiction?

Derek Mackay: Yes, I agree with that. There is a consensus that Brexit started off as a Tory gamble, then became a guddle and now is just a clear act of economic self-harm. It is harmful to our communities and businesses and to the people of Scotland and the rest of the UK. That is why we are trying to get to the least worst Brexit possible. We know just how damaging it is.
Ian Blackford: ...Tories paid the price for their folly—they were wiped off the political map of Scotland. The Prime Minister’s Chequers plan is even more unpopular than the poll tax. Why is the Prime Minister gambling with Scotland’s future by taking us out of the EU against our will with her disastrous Chequers plan?
the Earl of Sandwich: ...has asked about the prospects for peace there. We talk about post-conflict countries, but Afghanistan is one of those that is seemingly in perpetual conflict. We all know now that after 2001, NATO gambled heavily on its superior force and we followed the US almost blindly into Helmand, as we did in Basra, with some terrible results. But this debate must also show how much good we have been...
