Gambling warning

A coalition of Christian churches and organisations has urged the government to take ‘immediate’ action to prevent gambling-related harm, saying ‘society cannot afford to delay’.

The warning comes in submissions made in response to a review and consultation on the Gambling Act 2005. The coalition called for specific measures including a ban on – or a dramatic reduction in – gambling advertising and a compulsory levy on the industry to fund treatment, research and public awareness campaigns.
