Readjusting the balance between competition and control in UK gambling legislation

Abstract

Gambling policy aimed at protecting gamblers is a balance between competition and control. However, this balance changes over time as participation in, and attitudes towards, gambling change and new technology is introduced. The state of gambling research is such that policy makers must necessarily take a precautionary approach to policy design. It is such an approach to re-regulation which underpins the Gambling Bill in the UK.
