A minimum of two members is required for the meeting to be quorate. Deputies may attend where necessary and will be approved by the members of the group prior to the meeting.

A member of the legal team will attend to provide legal advice, including on application of the Gambling Commission’s Statements of Principles and Policies, but is not a member of the group.

Other employees of the Commission or advisers may be requested by the Committee to attend meetings to assist with discussions on any particular matter.
