Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many code of practice provisions relating to social responsibility the Gambling Commission is proposing for (a) licensed bingo clubs, (b) licensed betting offices and (c) licensed casinos. (89724)

The Gambling Commission is still considering responses to its consultation document Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice, (published in March 2006), so the number of provisions to be included in the Commission’s social responsibility codes for each type of licensed operator is still to be finalised. The Commission is aiming to publish its response to the consultation document and the final codes of practice and conditions on social responsibility by the end of October 2006.
