The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has published a consultation on changes aimed at improving intelligence sharing between the Gambling Commission and a number of sports governing bodies.

The consultation proposes updates to Schedule 6 of the Gambling Act 2005, which lists the bodies that are able to exchange information with the Gambling Commission under powers conferred by section 30 of the 2005 Act. The aim is to make changes that better reflect the bodies that the Gambling Commission shares information with on a regular basis. The schedule was last updated in 2012.
