UK gambling white paper finally set to be published
The long-awaited UK gambling white paper will include affordability checks and a review of British racing's levy system
The UK government’s white paper, which is expected to include new gambling rules for the digital age, is due to be published next Thursday. Proposals could include affordability checks on punters and a review of the British racing levy system.
The government’s review into gambling launched in December 2020, but repeated ministerial changes delayed the white paper's publication.
A voluntary ban on gambling advertising and sponsorship by the Premier League last week may preclude stringent measures in the paper, but the white paper is expected to support campaigners’ demand for a statutory levy on gambling operators.
