We welcome all contributions to the debate around gambling, including the Gambling Related Harm All Party Parliamentary Group’s recent report, and we are considering its findings and recommendations carefully. We also look forward to forthcoming reports from the Lords Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry, and the Public Accounts Committee’s inquiry into gambling regulation and problem gambling, to which we will formally respond.

The government has committed to review the Gambling Act 2005 to make sure it is fit for the digital age. Further details will be announced in due course.
