Neither DCMS nor the Gambling Commission has made a formal estimate of the number of online casinos that will be based in Great Britain from September 2007. However, from September 2007, the Gambling Commission will have records of all new holders of remote operating licences. The Secretary of State regularly discusses a wide range of subjects with Treasury Ministers.
