Changes to multi-operator self-exclusion, notification of deaths by suicide and payment services: Consultation Response
Proposal 4: Further consultation question
The consultation asked an additional question around any potential equalities impacts that could arise from the proposals.
Do you have any comments or evidence in relation to any potential equalities impacts of any of the proposals? In particular, do you have any concerns that any of the proposals could have a negative or disproportionate impact on persons with protected characteristics?
There were only a very small number of responses to this question and these mainly related to reiterating the principle that the consultation proposals if implemented did not have a negative impact on people with protected characteristics. This was raised as a general matter but also in relation to the specific proposals around suicide reporting.
The Gambling Commission has carefully considered the responses to the consultation questions and noted that the responses did not draw out themes or major areas of concern.
As a result of this and our ongoing considerations, we are content that there are no specific issues relating to equalities issues arising from the proposals that would prevent us from proceeding as planned.
In relation to suicide reporting, the Commission has considered issues associated with data protection and our position on this is contained within Proposal 2: Reporting of deaths by suicide to the Gambling Commission of this consultation response.
