Gaming Act

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many remote gaming operators have been prosecuted for breach of section 42(1)(c) of the 1968 Gaming Act in the last 12 months; what charge was brought in each case in which all proceedings are complete; and on what date each charge was brought. (108280)

In the last 12 months there have been no prosecutions for violating the advertising provisions of the 1968 Gaming Act.

The joint DCMS/Gambling Commission guidance on remote gambling advertising has led to a significant reduction in adverts that would be deemed to be in breach of the current regulatory framework in this area.
