Our Key Recommendations

In the House of Lords Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry's Report, over fifty recommendations were made. Out of these, our key recommendations are listed below:
  • Effective affordability checks for gamblers to prevent harm

  • An enforceable “duty of care” on the gambling industry to seek to avoid harm

  • Speed of play and stake limits for on-line gambling – with a triennial review of all stake limits

  • Testing for harm and the classification of all new gambling products

  • A mandatory “smart” levy on the industry to fund the costs of research, education and treatment

  • A ban on direct marketing and all inducements and an end to sports sponsorship by gambling operators

  • A Gambling Ombudsman to redress wrongs

  • Gambling regulation for Loot Boxes, which develop gambling in children

  • A Reform of “VIP schemes”

  • An NHS-led and commissioned treatment system to treat gambling addiction.
