Sports Minister appoints new sports betting integrity panel
Date: 24 June
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport have today announced
the appointment of a sports betting integrity panel.
The panel, which will bring together representatives from the
betting industry, the police, players, fans, sports governing
bodies, the legal profession and the Gambling Commission, will
address issues threatening the integrity of sport and will be
chaired by Rick Parry.
Gambling Commission chairman Brian Pomeroy said:
"I want to welcome Rick Parry and the other members of the
expert panel and look forward to sharing with them the benefit of
our expertise on betting integrity in the British market.
"I support this initiative strongly which brings together those
whose work keeps British sport free of corruption.
"By acting in concert against the threat to integrity, the betting
industry, sports bodies, players and their representatives, police
forces, the Gambling Commission and others can achieve much more
than any of us alone."
