Shocking figures on harm caused by unregulated online gambling – Jo Stevens

Jo Stevens MP, Shadow Culture Secretary, responding to the APPG on Gambling Related Harm report published today, said:

“This report lays bare truly shocking figures on the levels of harm caused by currently unregulated online gambling – and the mountain we have to climb to tackle the problem for good.

“The Government must now act to protect those at risk. The report contains several long-overdue recommendations to safeguard players, from the banning of advertisements and VIP accounts to the introduction of online stake limits.

“We need a regulated and safe gambling industry in the UK both for the industry itself and for those who are at risk from gambling-related harm.”
