A new consultation into gambling from the Culture, Media & Sport Committee is looking at the implementation and operation of the Gambling Act 2005.

It will examine the number of AWP machines a pub can have and low-stakes poker nights, among other subjects.

The Association of Licensed Multiple Operators (ALMR) said it will produce a submission for the committee's inquiry. Strategy director at the ALMR Kate Nicholls said: "Given that this inquiry has quite a wide-ranging focus on gambling, our submission will be targeted on pubs. We need to make sure that in regulating gambling,

the Government is not over-regulating pubs.

"We will produce findings from our benchmarking survey, which shows the importance of gaming machine income, especially in community pubs. We need to make sure that pubs' revenue stream is not disadvantaged and pubs are not left behind."
