The UK government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport is expected to launch its white paper consultation on a statutory levy “soon.”
Confirming the update, Ian Angus, director of policy at the UK Gambling Commission, said the regulator would be offering and publishing its advice to the DMCS.
The statutory levy was one of the headline proposals to come out of the UK white paper, which was published in April with the task of reforming the Gambling Act 2005.
While chiefly related to bringing legislation into the digital age, the levy proposal is one of a number of other key areas the white paper touches on.
Speaking at the Lotteries Council on Wednesday, Angus talked through the next set of consultations that is set to get underway in “early winter,” after the first tranche closes next Wednesday.
Socially responsible incentives such as bonuses will be under the spotlight as well as gambling management tools like online deposit limits. Regulatory returns are the third consultation set for publication.
