Anger at moves to water down gambling reforms: Plans for ban on football shirt ads set for U-turn

Ministers are to water down gambling reforms. They are expected to introduce a levy on betting giants and ban gambling sponsors from appearing on Premier League football shirts. The Daily Mail has long campaigned for action to curb gambling addiction. It ruins lives and costs the economy millions of pounds. There are an estimated 409 suicides linked to gambling in England every year. Sir Iain Duncan Smith will rebel on the issue. He is a member of the all-party parliamentary group for gambling-related harm. Last week, the Betting and Gaming Council warned a flat-rate levy would tip about a third of Britain’s casinos into loss and threaten nearly 3,000 jobs.

Josh Hall, 28, lost half his annual salary to Paddy Power in the week before he died. He was offered a loan of £51,000 to consolidate his gambling debts. Coroner ruled he committed suicide as a result of gambling addiction. Paddaddy power has made changes to player protection since May 2020.
