Tackling problem gambling
A group of Assembly Members including Pontypridd AM Mick Antoniw has commissioned a report on problem gambling in Wales. The report aims to establish – amongst other things – the density of problem gambling and its link to poverty and other addictions.
The report will be published on 15th November 2017 and will appear here shortly after.
Mick Antoniw said:
“Problem gambling affects people of all ages, but it’s increasingly becoming an issue for young people. A big issue is that there is so little known about gambling trends, although it’s impact on debt, health and family breakdown is a growing issue for the Welsh government. That’s why I commissioned research by the University of South Wales to identify the scale of the issue in the Pontypridd constituency and across Wales.”
