David Clifton comments on Glasgow City Council pledge to tackle gambling related harm

David Clifton is quoted in a Scott Longley authored article for Gambling Compliance entitled “Glasgow Summit to advance SNP’s Devolved Gambling Policy Push”.

This article focuses on Glasgow City Council’s announcement of its pledge to take further action to tackle harm caused by gambling, as reported on its website here.

In the Gambling Compliance article David comments that any moves to devolve gambling regulation in Scotland might mirror the efforts the Scottish government has made with regard to alcohol. In the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005, the SNP-led government added a provision for “protecting and improving public health” as a licensing objective on top of the other licensing objectives applicable in England and Wales.
