BBPA responds to Gambling Commission study

Commenting on the Gambling Commission’s study announced today, which found high levels of underage gaming machine play in pubs, Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said:

“We are committed to keeping the pub a safe and friendly environment for families, so we take these interim findings very seriously.

“We have ensured that all of our members are aware of both the BBPA’s and Gambling Commission’s codes of practice and we are already taking steps to develop a social charter for responsible gambling, for use by licensees and pub companies.

 “However, given the importance of this issue we are seeking urgent meetings with the Gambling Commission and local authorities to ensure appropriate action is taken.”
