Musings on a pending White Paper

In his current monthly ‘Licensing Expert’ article for SBC News, entitled Musings on a Pending White Paper’ (that you can download below), David Clifton has analysed the clues that have emanated from both UK Government Ministers and the Gambling Commission with regard to the content of the Gambling Act Review White Paper that it is expected will be published next month.

In his article, David addresses the following questions:

  • Will there be some fundamental changes proposed in the White Paper?
  • Will all of those changes require legislative change?
  • Can we expect to see a focus on more effective use of data?
  • What about affordability?
  • Will enhanced customer interaction requirements be set out in the White Paper
  • What about the Single Customer View?
  • So where will be the encouraging news for UK licensed operators?
