While we wait for the Prime Minister to address the media (instead of the House of Commons!), one piece of good news......
The cross-party campaign to reduce FOBT stakes to £2 has had another success. The government has responded to pressure and brought forward the date of the stake reduction to April of 2019, instead of October (an unjustified longer time frame which prompted the resignation of a government minister).
It means more people and families will be spared from the disastrous effects of these very harmful and highly addictive high stakes machines. Well done to all involved.
