London Notebook: New gambling law introduced

Tony Grew

Gambling legislation affecting Northern Ireland was introduced in the Commons this week.

"New provisions creating an offence of unlicensed advertising of remote gambling have been included in the Bill to ensure that Northern Ireland continues to have the same protections... as Great Britain," said Culture Minister Helen Grant.

Lady Hermon (above) worried the new law isn't tough enough. "Six months' imprisonment seems light indeed," she said.
