Government Shake Up Means Uncertainty for UK Gambling Reform

Government Shake Up Means Uncertainty for UK Gambling Reform

The government reorganization has caused uncertainty for UK gambling reform. Liz Truss was appointed as Prime Minister on Monday. Michelle Donelan, a supporter of gambling reforms, will be brought into the government.

Donelan was appointed Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. She succeeds Nadine Dorries who held the position under Johnson. Donelans will oversee the rollout of any new UK gambling laws. The white paper hasn't been published yet.

Donelan, a former marketing manager for WWE, was appointed as a minister for gambling reform. She voted for the maximum stake on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals to be reduced to £2. Donelans hasn't made her current views on gambling public.

Dugher congratulates Michelle Donelan on her new role as Secretary of State for DCMS. Dugher's organisation represents 119,000 people whose jobs are supported by their members.
