1 - Introduction

1.1. This agreement has been drawn up by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (opens in new tab) ("DCMS") in consultation with the Gambling Commission. This document sets out the broad framework within which Gambling Commission will operate. The document does not convey any legal powers or responsibilities. It is signed and dated by DCMS and the Gambling Commission. Copies of the document will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses of Parliament and made available to members of the public on the Gambling Commission's website, with a link to it on the DCMS site.

1.2. The agreement will remain in place until it is superseded by a new agreement. The agreement should be treated as a living document and reviewed by both sides annually in March. Any changes to ministerial priorities, policy requirements and KPIs will be made by exchange of letters between the Minister and the Gambling Commission Chair; all other changes will be made by exchange of letter between the DCMS Permanent Secretary and the Gambling Commission Chief Executive.

1.3 Legislative changes will take precedence over any part of this document. Significant variations will be cleared with the Treasury or the Cabinet Office as appropriate.

1.4 Nothing under this agreement shall prevent the Gambling Commission from carrying out its legal duties under its founding legislation or under any other legislation which impacts on its functions, activities or powers.
