Sarah Gardner, Deputy Chief Executive of the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), projects that the UK gambling sector will learn the results of some planned consultations soon enough.

One of the main conclusions the sector was able to glean from the Gambling Act review White Paper was that there really aren’t many conclusions. Although suggesting numerous proposals, the need for further proposals was reiterated throughout the document.

In a speech to the Lotteries Council Annual Conference, Gardner informed stakeholders that the Commission needs to ‘get it right’ on its own consultations concerning Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice.

“Less haste and more speed will be our approach,” she asserted, although stating that the need to factor all consultation responses into consideration will ‘rightly take time’.
