Summary of Responses to the Consultation on the Proposals for Gambling Commission Fees from 6 April 2012
The Gambling Act 2005 (the Act) gives the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport the power to make regulations setting fees to be paid to the Gambling Commission (the Commission) for operating and personal licences.
In doing so, the Secretary of State intends to ensure such fees are set in accordance with the Act and HM Treasury’s rules and guidance on fees, levies and charges set out in Managing Public Money and at a level that enables the Commission to recover the full costs of carrying out its responsibilities, with no cross subsidies and ensuring fairness and value for money for the gambling industry.
The Secretary of State and the Gambling Commission sought comments on these proposals and the initial Impact Assessment from all those who may be interested, including existing and potential new operators in the gambling industry, faith groups, those involved in problem gambling prevention and treatment, other interested parties, and individuals.
