British Bookmakers Petition Downing Street for Less Regulation

British Bookmakers Petition Downing Street for Less Regulation

Last week British bookmakers delivered a petition signed by more than 325,000 betting shop staff to 10 Downing Street.

The petition is calling on the government to support the industry which employs 43,000 people, serves six million customers and which has been a fixture of high streets across the country for over half a century. The last two years have seen more than 300 betting shops close in the UK and customers and staff are now worried that there will be further closures if more unnecessary regulation is brought in by the government. The petition urges the government not to “put thousands of jobs at risk through further regulation or tax hikes.”

The petition was triggered by the growing scrutiny of regulations around betting, specifically the extension of the Triennial Review into assessing the impact of FOBTs.
