Through my activities on the All-party parliamentary group on FOBTs and visiting the National Problem Gambling Clinic, in London, I have learned a great deal about the issue of gambling related harm and its effects on individuals and their families.
I plan to attend the parliamentary reception for Responsible Gambling Week on Tuesday to speak to all sectors of the UK gambling industry (arcades, bingo clubs, bookmakers, casinos and online).
It’s important that people who may be suffering with gambling problems seek out the necessary help and guidance. The National Gambling Helpline can be contacted on 0808 8020133.
