Review of remote gambling regulation in Great Britain
Date: 7 January 2010
Following a government review of remote gambling regulation in
Great Britain, Gerry Sutcliffe, the Minister for Sport, has today
announced proposals to introduce new licence requirements for
gambling operators based overseas.
The Gambling Commission was closely involved in the review and
welcomes the proposal to examine in detail how the current
licensing system might be extended to cover those overseas
organisations that target British consumers.
A consultation document on the feasibility of extending the
licensing system will be published by the Department of Culture,
Media and Sport (DCMS) shortly.
