Since the tragic loss of their son Jack, who took his life due to gambling addiction, I’ve supported my constituents Liz and Charles Ritchie in their campaign for gambling reform. Today the Government published a White Paper which addressed many of the issues for which they’ve campaigned through the influential charity they established, Gambling with Lives.

While welcoming much of the Government’s plan today in the Commons, I highlighted the omission of action on advertising which hooks many children and others into gambling addiction. I pressed the Secretary of State to think again and take action to end gambling advertising, particularly in football.
