Gambling policy is a cross-government issue involving ministers and officials from DCMS, Home Office, DHSC, HMT and other departments. Our departments work together closely and the Health Secretary has announced a cross-government addiction strategy that will include gambling.

We have no plans to return primary responsibility for gambling regulation to the Home Office as part of the Gambling Act Review.
