After the final report from the All-Parliamentary Group on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) was published, CARE's Director of Parliamentary Affairs Dr Dan Boucher spoke to Premier, as the report makes a clear case for urgent government action.

Dan Boucher, who gave evidence to the APPG committee, said:

"In a context where this Government has rightly set the goal of Britain working for everyone, it is clear that FOBTs don't really fit the narrative.

FOBTs certainly work for the bookmakers, but not for problem gamblers, their families or society as a whole. The recommendations this report makes are therefore very welcome and urgently needed."
