GB: POC Bill passed at Third Reading

Explore:  Gambling Gaming

The Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill was passed by the House of Lords today in the Third Reading and returned to the House of Commons with one amendment.

Two amendments were debated. The first extends the liability to pay the Horse Racing Levy to all bookmakers that hold a British remote operating licence (even those based outside Great Britain), and was agreed. The second, which was withdrawn, sought to prevent advertising in Britain until “the Secretary of State has reported to Parliament on the outcome of any reviews into advertising of gambling in Britain that they have commissioned in the six months before the day on which this Act is passed.”

The transcript from the debate can be read here.

The Bill is now one step closer to Royal Assent.
