On 17 May 2018, the Sport and Civil Society Minister, Tracey Crouch, made a statement on the Government Response to proposals for changes to Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures.
The minister told the House that the Government wants "a healthy gambling industry that contributes to the economy, but also one that does all it can to protect players and their families, as well as the wider communities, from harm".
In response, Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary Tom Watson, said that he urged "the Government to use the new spirit of consensus to introduce a new gambling Act, fit for the purposes of the digital age".
