I would also like to thank Marcus’ predecessor Bill Moyes for working with us over the last two years and wish him well for the future.”

Moreover, Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “This is an important moment for the Gambling Commission as we fulfill our manifesto commitment to undertake the first major review of gambling laws in 15 years. New leadership will bring a new direction and focus for the Commission and I very much look forward to working with Marcus.”
