Gambling Act 2005

Volume 459: debated on Thursday 3 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what risk assessment has been carried out by her Department of the timetable and critical milestones leading to the 1 September implementation date for the Gambling Act 2005; and if she will place in the Library a copy of her Department’s plan for managing risks identified. (132802)

As part of its programme management arrangements, the Department has assessed the risk to the implementation of the Gambling Act 2005 by 1 September 2007 at both individual workstream and overall programme level. Identified risks are monitored regularly and suitable controls are put in place. The plan for managing risks is an integral part of the programme risk register. I am unable to disclose the content of the register as to do so would inhibit the future provision of free and frank advice, and exchange of views.
