The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has published its new business plan for 2019–2020. The plan focuses on protecting consumers, raising standards and improving regulatory measures, among other things.

The UKGC said that its five strategic priorities continue to be: protecting the interests of consumers and preventing gambling harm to consumers and the public. The priorities also include raising standards in the gambling market and optimising turns to good causes from lotteries. Furthermore, improving the way it regulates is one of the pillars of the business plan.

Neil McArthur, chief executive of the Gambling Commission, said: “This business plan highlights the projects and milestones we will complete during 2019–2020 as we move into the second year of our Strategy 2018–2021. Our overriding objective is to make gambling fairer and safer for consumers, in what is a constantly developing market. I am proud of the progress we have made with our ambitious strategy. But I am also clear that there is much more to do.”
