UK govt committee calls for gambling regulatory overhaul

Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance Regions: UK & Ireland 29th June 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address UK govt committee calls for gambling regulatory overhaul The House of Commons’ Public Accounts Committee has issued a damning assessment of gambling regulation in Great Britain, describing the Gambling Commission as a “torpid, toothless” regulator and accusing the Department for Culture, Media and Sport of dragging its feet over regulatory change.The committee, which is responsible for monitoring government expenditure, concluded that both DCMS and the Commission had an “unacceptably weak” understanding of the impact of gambling harms, and few metrics in place to actually measure such problems.The regulator was failing to proactively influence operators to improve player protections, and consistently lagged behind industry developments, the committee said. When operators failed to act responsibly, it added, consumers then lacked the same rights to redress as in other sectors.This meant both DCMS and the Commission were failing UK problem gamblers, an estimated 395,000 people, as well as the further 1.8m classed as at risk. These individuals and their families faced “devastating, life-changing” effects such as financial ruin and the loss of their homes, the breakdown of relationships, turning to crime and in some cases sufferers saw problems contribute to suicides.“What has emerged in evidence is a picture of a torpid, toothless regulator that doesn’t seem terribly interested in either the harms it exists to reduce or the means it might use to achieve that,” committee chair and MP for Hackney South and Shoreditch Meg Hillier said.“The Commission needs a radical overhaul: it must be quicker at responding to problems, update company licence conditions to protect vulnerable consumers and beef up those consumers’ rights to redress when it fails.”Part of the issues flagged by the committee were blamed on a lack of adequate funding, something already highlighted in a National Audit Office report published in February.The Gambling Commission took £19m in licence fees in the 2018-19 fiscal year, less than 0.2% of the £11.3bn gambling yield for 2018-19 for the industry excluding the National Lottery. In contrast, the Public Accounts Committee noted, the industry had agreed to spend £60m to treat problem gamblers.“However, the Department was unwilling to accept the premise that increasing the Commission’s budget to prevent harm would be preferable to spending on treating problem gamblers,” the committee pointed out.Therefore the review of the 2005 Gambling Act was urgently needed, with DCMS ordered to set out a timetable for this process within three months.Compared to other public health issues such as alcohol dependency or obesity, there was a lack of comprehensive research, and in turn a limited understanding of gambling harms. DCMS, in fact, did not appear to treat gambling problems with the same urgency as these other issues.While the Commission had begun to do more to gather and use the perspectives of those with experience of gambling harm, DCMS had not proactively funded gambling related research. Instead, it relies on projects by bodies such as Public Health England and the National Institute for Health Research.The committee therefore ordered DCMS and the Commission to set out what actions each will take to ensure they have the research and evidence base to better understand gambling problems and develop an effective regulatory response within three months.This lack of understanding was further hindered by a lack of data into problems that consumers have with gambling operators. For land-based gambling, 119 local licensing authorities out of 380 in Great Britain failed to conduct any inspections in 2018-19. This included almost no authorities in Scotland, while around 60 across Britain failed to carry out inspections in the past three years.For online gambling, the Commission does not use gambling transaction data from banks or payment providers to understand how people are gambling, even when it has access to this information for anti-money laundering purposes. The committee did acknowledge that the regulator had been gathering intelligence on player behaviour during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown, though it still lacked data as to whether the industry was meeting its own voluntary commitments.It was therefore told to provide the Public Accounts Committee with an update on gambling patterns during Covid-19, and whether the industry had met the 10 commitments set out by the Betting and Gaming Council early in the crisis.Better use of data would also help the industry become more proactive at influencing operators to improve protections, another key failing flagged by the committee. For example, the committee pointed out that after misleading terms and conditions for bonus promotions were identified in 2015, it took a further three years for the licensing conditions and codes of practice to be updated to outlaw these.This contributed to public trust in the industry collapsing, with the number of people believing the industry was fair and could be trusted falling from 49% in 2008 to 34% in the most recent survey of customer attitudes. Concerns about gambling behaviour under lockdown, meanwhile, were tackled by the industry, rather than the Commission, through a temporary halt to audiovisual advertising.A plan for taking a more proactive approach to encouraging positive changes by operators was therefore necessary. This could take the form of reputational tools such as league tables indicating how each licensee treats its customers, something already put forward by the Advisory Board for Safer Gambling last week.Even when the regulator does act, such as through the ban on credit card gambling that came into force from 14 April, the Committee said it has little understanding of how effective this will be in reducing gambling harm. Furthermore, the committee added, that ban failed to address concerns around young people gambling, especially 16 and 17 year-olds, which can play fixed-odds national lottery games. This, the committee, said, was something that should be investigated as a matter of urgency.Online fixed-odds betting in particular was a vertical that there appeared to be a lack of insight into harms, and potential changes, the committee continued. Again, the Commission and DCMS were ordered to set out an action plan within three months.These harm prevention measures were particularly important as when consumers are failed by licensees, they have few rights of redress. When operators fail to meet their obligations to prevent a customer from gambling too much, terms and conditions mean the player has little opportunity to seek compensation. This means that many of the complaints filed against licensees cannot be pursued.“Individuals who may have lost thousands of pounds can only seek redress by taking legal action which they are unlikely to be able to fund,” the committee explained. “As a result, the current regulatory regime is ineffective in meeting the licensing objective under the Gambling Act to protect vulnerable people.”This therefore requires a plan from DCMS and the Commission to close these gaps, which is to be formulated within six months.As a result of the gaps in its research and inability to support customers that have been failed by the industry, neither DCMS nor the Gambling Commission is aware what impact their measures have on problem gambling. There are no targets for reducing the number of problem gamblers in Great Britain, and meaningful outcome measures are required.Its understanding of enforcement actions were also found to be lacking, in the committee’s eyes. Despite the financial penalties levied rising from £1.4m in 2014-15 to £19.6m in 2018-19, there is no evidence as to whether such actions have been effective in deterring rule-breaking. Impact evaluation processes must be urgently progressed, so the Commission can set out a plan to assess the impact of penalties on incidents of problem gambling, again within three months.The findings were hailed by safe gambling campaign group Gambling with Lives, which it said clearly set out the failure of regulation in the country.“Gambling causes mental health problems and suicide. We are calling for cross- departmental action to stop the deaths,” it said. “The promised review of the Gambling Act cannot be delayed any longer.”However, following the criticism of DCMS in the report, it urged the government to establish an independent team from the departments of health and education to lead the review.Industry standards body the Betting and Gaming Council, meanwhile, highlighted the industry’s voluntary actions to improve protections for customers, such as the ban on advertising around live sport and increasing funding for research, education and treatment.“Nearly 30 million people enjoy gambling occasionally, whether that’s on the National Lottery, bingo, sports or gaming, and the overwhelming majority of them do so safely, and our industry supports over 100,000 jobs and pays over £3 billion in tax each year,” the BGC explained.“The industry is working hard to raise standards to help problem gamblers and those at risk, though we note that both the regulator and the government have made it clear that there is no evidence that problem gambling has increased.”It argued that the industry was already heavily regulated, and warned against driving customers to illegal operators, where customers would not be subject to the safeguards in place for the licensed sector.“We are committed to making more voluntary changes and driving up safer gambling standards. We will work with the Gambling Commission and the government to achieve this, particularly on the forthcoming review of the Gambling Act.”last_img read more

English National League South football club Billericay Town has agreed a deal to promote a number of UK responsible gambling organisations over the next week as part of an effort to combat gambling-related harm in football. “We seek partners that share our values to seek positive returns and to have a long-term impact on society.” “At Billericay Town we feel that in the same way as investors evaluate corporate behaviour when considering investment opportunities, we have to make the same considerations when choosing who to partner with for advertising and sponsorship opportunities,” Billericay part-owner Nick Hutt said. Topics: Responsible gambling From 27 November until 4 December, the club will signpost fans and followers to groups that assist with gambling addiction, including GamFam and RecoverME to help ensure people get the help they need. Gambling addiction recovery podcast All Bets Are Off will also serve as the match sponsor for the fixture with Chelmsford City on 1 December. Email Addresscenter_img In addition, Billericay will work with The Big Step, a football-focused gambling education project and part of the Gambling with Lives charity, and support its ongoing efforts to reduce gambling advertising in football. The club will work with organisations such All Bets Are Off, Gambling with Lives, Gamban and The Big Step as part of the new initiative, which will begin today (27 November) and run until 4 December. James Grimes, a recovering gambling addict, founder of The Big Step and senior programme manager at Gambling with Lives, added: “As a recovering gambling addict and massive football fan, I’m equally passionate in ensuring football is part of the solution in reducing gambling harms in this country.” The Big Step and Swansea are now working together to deliver a community-based education, training, awareness and signposting programme.

Wilderness house is located on a secluded bush block amongst coastal banksia woodland, along the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge and a stones throw from the iconic Margaret River surf coast. The design response is a modernist elevated platform with large areas of glass to the master bedroom and living areas that can be slid aside to evoke the feeling of being on an open platform up amongst the treetops.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackDiagrammatically, the houses’ simple rectangular plan is separated east-west into sleeping and living zones that enable the client to rise with the sun in the morning and then enjoy a drink whilst taking in the sunset through the trees in the evening.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackSo as to enable a continuous flow of space on the upper level, the service zone, encompassing kitchen, laundry, bathroom and robe as well as a study are grouped in a centrally located ‘pod’. Walls of this service zone stop short of the ceiling to enhance the visual flow of one space into another. No internal doors on the upper level further amplify the sense of a singular space (and leaves visitors potentially uneasy with the prospect of using the sans ceiling/door toilet cubicle!).Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackSave this picture!1st floor planSave this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackThe upper floor is accessed along a raw galvanised expanded mesh walkway that permits views through to the landscape below. Slender circular section galvanised columns support the insulated upper floor concrete slab and a single ground floor bedroom / storage room and bathroom with outdoor shower provides privacy for visiting guests.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackThe main bathroom opens directly onto north facing sliding doors, allowing the owners to bathe in winter sunshine with the chatter of magpies and parrots directly outside. A curved, white mosaic tiled wall acts to softly define this open room and is mirrored in the curved surround to the bath. Raw galvanised steel Juliet balconies in front of sliding glass doors to the bedroom, bathroom and living room enable the entire house to be opened up to the outdoors and the constant summer hum of cicadas and chatter of birds amongst the trees.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackIn a similar style to Archterra’s Bush house, Wilderness house takes cues from the case study houses of the 40,50s and 60s with a structurally and materials efficient 3.6m structural grid. The grid enables both steel structure and concrete slab to be as slender as possible and facilitate the use of full 2.4m x 1.2m hoop pine plywood sheets on the ceiling without wastage.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackTo address energy efficiency, the large areas of low emissivity glass are capped by optimally sized horizontal shades that ensure winter sun penetrates deeply onto the charcoal pigmented floor slab whilst excluding the hot summer sun.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackNarrow, louvered ventilation slots to the south work in tandem with larger sliding doors on the north to quickly exhaust any build up of hot air during summer and the elevated form borrows from Queensland and Northern Territory housing typologies to catch even the slightest of cooling breezes.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackExternally the house is clothed in durable, no-maintenance and bushfire resistant finishes of colorbond sheeting, hot dip galvanised steel, raw compressed cement sheet and raw spotted gum decking.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackProject gallerySee allShow lessAnji Erlu Resort / The Design Institute of Landscape and Architecture China Academy …Selected ProjectsHouse I / Tria ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share Architects: Archterra Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeArchterra ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsMargaret RiverAustraliaPublished on February 25, 2019Cite: “Wilderness House / Archterra Architects” 25 Feb 2019.

As the client wants to use the new extension on the second floor as a guest house as well as social space, a large common space is designed to provide various types of social events, such as workshops, receptions, or dinners.Save this picture!© HyoSook ChinAt the same time, a skylight zone is designed with the implementation of a translucent curtain where one person or a small group can gather for quality time. This retractable curtain can be fully opened, closed, half-opened, or quarter-closed, depending on use and needs, and this also forms a different spatial zone of the social space. Though its structural move may seem radical, to introduce a table that can hold a new form to sit on top without compromising the existing building below, the overall form of the building follows the roofline of the old house and other houses in the neighborhood in order to be contextual in the neighborhood.Save this picture!© HyoSook ChinProject gallerySee allShow lessAre Cities Over?
