Iain Duncan Smith calls for more powerful regulator to replace UKGC

Business News

Sir Iain Duncan Smith welcomes the announcement of a comprehensive review of the Gambling Act and calls on the Government to consider replacing the Gambling Commission with a more powerful regulator.

We know that there have been problems with VIP schemes. We have acted on them already, but that does not mean that further action is not necessary. I am confident that the evidence-led review may reveal further options and avenues. I welcome his input into all areas under consideration. As I said, the Gambling Commission’s scope and resources are part of that review.
