The Gambling Act 2005 for Gaming/Betting Punters
The Gambling Act 2005 gives greater protection for the vulnerable minority of people
(betting punters) who have problems with their gambling habits.
The Act introduced a unified regulator for gambling in Great Britain, the
Gambling Commission, and a new licensing regime for commercial bookmakers (to be conducted
by the Commission or by Licensing Authorities, depending on the matter to be licensed).
The Act removed from licensing justices all responsibility for granting gaming and betting
permissions, which they had exercised previously.
Instead, the Gambling Commission and ourselves will share between us responsibility for all those
matters previously regulated by the licensing justices.
One of the objectives of the Act is protecting children and other vulnerable
persons/punters from being harmed or exploited by gambling (or from greedy bookmakers).
The main objectives of the Licensing Authority under the Act are:
Social Responsibility and Punter Protection
- Consideration of applications for premises licences and provisional statements.
- The issue of permits in relation to the use of gaming machines.
- Endorsement and receipt of Temporary Use Notices and Occasional Use Notices.
- The Registration of small society lotteries.
The new Act, which comes into full force from September 2007, will for the
first time require as a condition of licences to bookmakers that operators demonstrate a commitment
to social responsibility and protection of punters.
The Gambling Commission's licensing conditions and codes of practice require the
industry to take particular measures to protect children and the vulnerable.
The gambling industry has a responsibility to provide gambling products in a way that
does not encourage repetitive play.
The industry has established the Responsibility in Gambling Trust to fund prevention
and treatment of problem gambling.
It has also increased funding for the charity GamCare, with a telephone helpline and
counselling as a priority.
Public Awareness and Education Materials
The Responsibility in Gambling Trust has produced educational materials for schools and is
developing a public awareness campaign during 2007.
The objectives of the national campaign will be:
Locally, the council has produced a web section Gambling Advice for the Public, in the
Health and Lifestyle area of this site, including advice for young people,punters and links to
organisations providing support for gambling problem.
- Letting the public know where it can get some help services.
- Letting the public have well publicized access to information on how to make informed consumer choices
and avoid developing gambling addictions.
