Sessions of the current inquiry

On the 17th May 2018 the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport announced that the stake on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals will be reduced to £2, a decision that the APPG very much welcomed. We are, however, deeply concerned to hear that implementation of this reduced stake may be delayed until 2020.

As a result the APPG has announced that it will hold an inquiry into implementation and the issues which may arise from a delay in implementing a £2 stake.

Please see below for the sessions of this inquiry.
