Dugher: Industry will change regardless of Gambling Act review

first_img Email Address Dugher suggested there was something of a silent majority in the Commons, who were less engaged in the debate over gambling reform. He said that although the industry has also co-operated with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Gambling Related Harm, other, less vocal, MPs could play a crucial role in legislative review too. “We should demand higher standards and if there’s operators who can’t meet those higher standards then they shouldn’t be in the business. I think I speak for all BGC members when I say that.” This summer has sen input from a variety of other groups on potential targets of a Gambling Act review, many of which have included aspects that the BGC has voiced its opposition to.  In Dugher’s view, the upcoming review is a necessary one and offers a great opportunity to help develop greater levels of protection to limit problem play, though stressed that it was equally important to cater to those less at risk of gambling harms. “But we have to listen to everyone and that includes the customers who enjoy the occasional bet but are not problem gamblers. They’re an important voice in our industry and they have their views on the industry that need to be heard.” He also cited the whistle-to-whistle adverting ban, which was introduced just as the BGC was being formed, which research by Enders Analysis claims has cut the number of gambling ads seen by minors by 97%.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Dugher added that this was part of the BGC’s wider effort to be responsible for promoting high standards within the industry, rather than simply representing it. The series will continue with a range of high-profile industry figures, with the first five guests including Lord Foster of Bath, John White of Bacta and Flutter Entertainment director Richard Flint. Dugher: Industry will change regardless of Gambling Act review 22nd October 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Tags: Betting and Gaming Council Michael Dugher Gambling Act All-Party Parliamentary Group Parliament Daniel Bliss “It’s important that the gambling industry takes action itself,” he told anchor Daniel Bliss and co-host Robin Harrison. “We’re not going to just sit back and wait for a review.” At a time when the sector’s public image has taken a battering, he argued that rather than engaging only with its critics, the BGC had a duty to communicate with all stakeholders, including those in parliament.  The full podcast is available for download now. Remember, next week’s second episode sees Carolyn Harris MP, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Gambling Related Harm (APPG-GRH) join Bliss and Harrison.  “I think it’s important that we engage with every MP. Most MPs don’t have particularly strong views on this but they may, from time to time, have issues their constituents have raised or concerns they want to discuss with us. It’s absolutely right and proper that the BGC engages with these MPs.” “I think there’s a difference between mainstream members of parliament who have genuine concerns about aspects of the industry and those, more of a minority, who frankly are the prohibitionists, who don’t like online betting full stop,” Dugher said. However, despite noting he disagreed with its approach on stake limits, Dugher praised many aspects of the Social Market Foundation’s report on gambling reform, even if it leads to a regime with fewer licensees. “The BGC is not merely a representative trade body. It absolutely will be a standards body. It will work round the clock to drive higher standards across this industry.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The former Labour MP made a point of highlighting the efforts taken by the industry to introduce new safeguards to players, such as the BGC’s ten-point player protection plan, announced as the UK went into lockdown in March.  “I thought it was a very thoughtful report,” He talked about raising standards for licensees and that’s very important. If that means fewer licensees then that’s something we’re prepared to accept.  Listen to the first episode now. Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility Strategy Legal Regulation Problem gambling Responsible gambling Regions: UK & Ireland “We’ve got to get the balance right between protecting the vulnerable and also protecting the millions who do enjoy the occasional bet and protecting those players safely,” he explained. “We do have to make this review have a really big focus on problem gambling. It may only be a tiny minority of people who are problem gamblers but any person is one person too many. It’s a chance to tackle problem gambling and from the industry’s point of view we want to see some big changes. Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) chief Michael Dugher says the standards body will not “sit back and wait for a review” before coordinating new social responsibility measures across the British gambling sector, in iGB’s new Gambling Review Podcast.

Millions lost to fraud & cybercrime by charities since March

first_img“Charity brings immense value to society, not just through the good work charities do directly, but also in its power to promote cohesion, well-being, and pride in our society. This is more important than ever, so the fact that there are those who wish to exploit public generosity and charitable endeavour for selfish, criminal purposes is appalling. Combating fraud is vital to giving people confidence that their money is safe and will go to the causes they care so deeply about.”The Commission is directing charities to an online hub for resources and advice on avoiding and tackling fraud and cybercrime. This year’s Charity Fraud Awareness Week runs from today until Friday 23 October.This year’s campaign has three core messages:Be fraud awareTake time to checkKeep your charity safe Charities have reported being victims of fraud or cybercrime 645 times since the start of the pandemic in March, amounting to £3.6 million in total losses, according to the Charity Commission.During this week’s Charity Fraud Awareness Week, the Charity Commission is warning that the true figure is likely to be far higher due to fraud often being under-reported.It believes that remote working, virtual activities and sign-off processes, combined with ‘charities’ tendencies to place goodwill and trust in individuals’, possibly making them especially vulnerable. It also warns that charities providing services and supporting local communities could be amongst those at risk following reports of criminals using PPE as a lure in scams.Analysis of frauds reported to the Commission has found that in some cases fraudsters have preyed on people’s fear and anxieties. In addition, the Commission believes economic hardship may have increased perpetrators’ temptation to commit fraud, particularly in cases of insider fraud. For example, it has seen cases of charity employees diverting funds into their personal bank accounts and selling charity equipment for personal gain.However, Charity Commission research has found that nearly three quarters (73%) of charities affected by fraud go on to change their procedures or enhance internal controls to avoid future frauds, and that two thirds of frauds are picked up by financial controls or audit, showing that implementing some simple checks and controls, together with a strong counter-fraud culture, can be key to disarming fraudsters.Helen Stephenson CBE, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission said:“We are seeing evidence that opportunists may be taking advantage of charities during the pandemic and I urge all charities to be extra vigilant against fraud.This comes at a time when charities are a lifeline for many people suffering from Covid-19, and the wider impacts of the pandemic – charities have been at the forefront of responding to the crisis, and many have also been placed under severe financial strain. As our country faces another challenging point in the crisis, we cannot afford for charitable work to be disrupted by criminals. When fraud hits charities, its impact is felt far beyond the balance sheet – it is people that are let down, often hard-working volunteers or people in desperate need. That’s why I’m urging all trustees to take action now, to protect their charity’s valuable funds and assets.

The Special Bench comprising Chief Justice DN Patel, Justice Siddharth Mridul, and Justice Talwant Singh, noted that it’s time that the blanket order on extending interim release granted to prisoners to control the spread of coronavirus in the jails, should be reviewed. As per Special Bench’s last order, all orders concerning interim bail or parole were extended till October 31. The court said: ‘We believe that the COVID chapter should end, and the blanket order should now cease to exist. The situation should go back to what it was back in January. Released prisoners should be asked to surrender; after surrendering, they can seek to approach the respective trial courts seeking interim bail on merits, if they wish to.’ The court further added that this view should not affect the working of the High Powered Committee, which should continue to function as per its mandate. Today, the Director General (Prisons) personally appeared before the court. He informed the court that a total of 3 prisoners are currently COVID positive who have been admitted to LNJP Hospital. In addition to 3 prisoners, DG submitted, 236 jail staff have also tested positive for coronavirus. Appearing for the Delhi Government, Mr Rahul Mehra submitted that COVID19 virus did not turn into an epidemic inside the prison due to the robust action taken by the jail authorities. Mr Mehra further submitted that the presence of more than 6000 prisoners in the society has created anarchy in the city, creating a spurt in crime numbers. Despite showing its inclination to end the blanket order, the court decided to reserve the order. ‘We’ll ponder upon this issue and then pronounce our order later today’, the court said Next Storylast_img read more
