Horse Racing: Betting

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps his Department is taking to assist the Horserace Betting Levy Board to collect Levy payments arising from bets placed with betting operators registered overseas. (291815)

We support the Levy Board’s aim of securing contributions from gambling operators to ensure the continued health of racing.

The Department is currently conducting a review of remote gaming, which is examining this issue along with others. The review will report to Ministers by the end of the year, and Ministers will report findings to Parliament.
