Following today’s announcement that five of Britain’s leading betting and gaming companies have agreed a package of safer gambling measures and a ten-fold increase in funding for problem gambling treatment William Hill Chief Executive Philip Bowcock said:
"There is an unprecedented level of agreement among leading companies that now is the time for the industry to step up to the plate and ensure we play our full part in addressing the issues surrounding gambling related harm. Today we are announcing that we will commit significant levels of additional funds which will lead to an expansion in treatment and safer gambling initiatives. Our hope is that this begins a new era of cooperation within the industry and between the industry and experts, charities, Government and the regulator to promote safer gambling and minimise the risks."
