Between 1 March and 1 September 2010, the Department introduced one statutory instrument:

The Gambling Act 2005 (Operating Licence Conditions) (Amendment) Regulations 2010 which imposed a gross cost on business, but the net overall effect of the regulation was a benefit to business.

Within the same period, the Department did not remove any regulations which imposed costs on businesses.
