(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Licensed Betting Offices Regulations 1986 as a consequence of the making of the Deregulation (Betting and Bingo Advertising etc.) Order 1997. That Order inter alia permits the advertising of licensed betting offices through advertisements in a material form.
Regulation 1 provides for citation, commencement and extent.
Regulation 2 amends regulation 4 of the 1986 Regulations—
so as to make it clear that the restrictions set out in that regulation extend to advertisements published otherwise than in a material form;
and to remove a reference to section 10(6)(b)(iii) of the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act 1963, which is repealed by the Order.
