Statement of principles

Start date:  17 October 2005
End date:  27 January 2006
Number of responses received:  80 

As a result of this consultation, the Gambling Commission published the 'Statement of principles - December 2006'.

This consultation set out our principles that apply when exercising its functions under the Gambling Act 2005.

Changes from the original version (Statement of principles - October 2005) were modest, with further text being added to provide clarity in some instances and a few revisions to the language or terminology used, to bring it up to date.

A further opportunity to comment on the draft principles was provided through our subsequent consultations on Licence conditions and codes of practice, Licensing, compliance and enforcement and Financial conditions on gambling operators and personal licence holders.

Responses to all of these consultations have informed our development of the Statement of principles.
