Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses British perspectives on the respective roles of the national government and of the European Union in the commercial gambling regulation. The chapter first summarises the present and potential EU regime governing the provision by a commercial operator in one member state of gambling services to the citizens of another. Then, it reviews the essential elements of the new regulatory regime for Great Britain contained in the Gambling Act 2005. The chapter also comments on some important developments within this market that are the consequence of the recent application of European law and examines the changing regulatory landscape within the EU. The author draws attention as appropriate to the perspectives of the various actors within the British market to these actual and proposed extensions in the European Union’s reach over the provision of commercial gambling services between member states.
