The IEA is asking a panel why the 2005 Gambling Act never paid off:
…many of the liberalising measures mooted for the 2005 Gambling Act were dropped by a Labour administration beset by a bruising press campaign – warning of “blackjack on every street corner” – and hamstrung by pre-election jitters.
But is it now time for the Act to be revisited? Should its more liberal intentions be restored? And what benefits would it bring to the casino industry, its consumers and the UK economy?
You can join them Tuesday September 11 at the IEA, on Lord North Street, from 6.30-8.00pm. RSVP via the IEA.
