The UK government appeared to give the clearest indication yet that the Gambling Commission’s proposals for affordability checks will be incorporated into its own ongoing review of gambling legislation on Thursday.
John Whittingdale, Minister for Gambling and Lotteries, told the Commons that any new checks would “harmonise” with the review.
He spoke during an adjournment debate called by Scott Benton, the Conservative MP for Blackpool South.
Moreover, a Gambling Commission consultation on remote customer interaction ended in February. It included a proposal that punters with a monthly gambling loss of £100 can prove their income to continue betting.
