Labour must finish the job – states Bollom

Responding to the General Election announcement, John Bollom, Bacta President said:

“A snap General Election was always the biggest risk to getting the Gambling White Paper reforms passed into law.

“I am asking every Bacta member to contact their parliamentary candidates – especially the Labour Party candidates – to encourage them to support the land-based gambling reforms.

“We will be issuing advice to members on how to do this in the coming days. 

“It is imperative, if there is a change in Government, that Labour finishes the job and supports modernisation of our sector to support both the High Street and seaside towns. 

“The reforms are so vital for our sector. I like to think they may have been delayed not derailed. Our campaign continues.”
