Regulatory Reform Committee

Draft Legislative Reform (Horseracing Betting Levy) Order 2018 inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Due to the general election on 12 December 2019 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 6 November, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

Scope of the inquiry

Government proposals to reform the way the horserace betting levy is collected and distributed will be examined at a joint meeting of Committees from the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

The House of Lords Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee (DPRRC) and the House of Commons Regulatory Reform Committee (RRC) will meet together to scrutinise the draft Legislative Reform (Horserace Betting Levy) Order 2018.

The two committees will hear from Parliamentarians and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on the draft Order that would abolish the Horseracing Betting Levy Board and give its powers to the Gambling Commission and a new horseracing authority to be designated by the Culture Secretary. According to the Government, the change will save on administration costs and ensure more funding is available for the British horseracing industry and horse welfare.
