Lord Waddington

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they intend to introduce legislation to reform the gambling laws. [HL3623]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

We will bring forward legislation as soon as parliamentary time permits. We also intend that Parliament should have an opportunity to give our proposals pre-legislative scrutiny and plan to publish draft clauses to that end.
