The Government is carrying out a Review of the Gambling Act 2005 and making sure we have the right balance between freedom of choice and protection from harm is a core objective. We welcome contributions to the debate, including the report by the Centre for Social Justice, and we will consider its recommendations carefully alongside the responses to our call for evidence.
