New laws will safeguard against “truly awful” gambling addiction that can be devastating for families, the Taoiseach has said. Micheal Martin said the “long-awaited and much-needed” proposed legislation “takes a responsible approach” to regulating the gambling sector in the country. The Gambling Regulation Bill was approved by Government ministers at a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday. The planned laws aim to create a “modern, robust regulatory and licensing regime” for the gambling sector. It also paves the way for the establishment of a gambling regulator, who will have the powers to regulate advertising, gambling websites and apps.
