The Government has announced that the full implementation of the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act 2014 will be postponed until 1 November 2014.

Following judicial review proceedings in the High Court on 22-23 September (the Gibraltar challenge to the Act), the Department of Culture, Media and Sport will shortly publish a further statutory instrument to postpone this legislation coming into force until 1 November 2014. This will allow the Court more time to assess the issues raised.
