The Gambling Act 2005 replaces most of the existing laws about gambling in Great Britain and replaces it with an improved, more comprehensive structure of gambling regulation. It transfers the responsibility for gaming premises from the Magistrates to the Licensing Authority and increases the powers of the Gambling Commission.
The Act requires Licensing Authorities to prepare and publish every three years, a Statement of Principles which outlines the principles which they propose to apply when exercising their functions.
The Gambling Policy is similar to that required by the Licensing Act 2003 and must follow procedures set out in the Act, including whom they consult.
