To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport
(1) for how long he expects the White List to remain suspended;
(2) what plans he to introduce a replacement for the White List;
(3) whether his Department plans to compensate countries wishing to join the White List in respect of revenue foregone due to the suspension of the White List.
The previous Government decided it was not appropriate to consider any new applications for the White List while the future of remote gambling regulation is under consideration, and we agree. I hope to announce the Government’s preferred solution in due course. There are no plans to compensate jurisdictions who might wish to join the White List, and it would be hard to justify why British taxpayers should be asked to make such payments.
