FOBT review announcement due 11th May 2018

A decision on the maximum stakes for FOBTs is expected next week following further delays.

It has been reported that the Prime Minister will make an announcement on the Government’s review of FOBTs next week. An announcement was expected this week but a Cabinet Minister has reportedly objected to the lower limit of £2.

The Times have reported that the Esther McVey, the Work and Pensions Secretary, has strongly objected to the plan which has caused a further delay in the Prime Minister making an announcement.

The Cabinet supported the £2 maximum limit however the Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, are now said “to be concerned that Theresa May may yet choose a higher maximum limit. “Two pounds is not over the line yet.”
