Regulatory Reform Committee
Oral evidence session announced.
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.
Evidence given by Lord LipseyMims Davies MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Sport and Civil Society, Julie Carney, Deputy Director, Head of Gambling and Lotteries, James Perkins, Head of Horserace Betting, Harry Navanayagam, Legal Adviser, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
