Labour delighted gambling operators have adopted our gambling advertising ban – Watson

Tom Watson MP, Labour’s Shadow Culture Secretary, commenting on the gambling operators agreeing a whistle to whistle advertising ban, said:

“We’re delighted that gambling operators have adopted Labour’s policy of a whistle to whistle ban on gambling advertising during live sport.

“With over 430,000 problem gamblers in the country, many of them children, the number of adverts during live sports had clearly reached crisis levels.

“There was clear public support for these restrictions and we’re glad that the Remote Gambling Association has taken its’ responsibilities seriously and listened.”
