Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)

These Regulations amend the Bookmaking (Forms of Licences) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987 (the 1987 Regulations) as a consequence of the Betting and Gaming (Northern Ireland) Order 2004 (the 2004 Order). The 2004 Order amends the Betting, Gaming, Lotteries and Amusements (Northern Ireland) Order 1985 to permit, among other things, the operation of gaming machines in licensed bookmaking offices. In addition, a court of summary jurisdiction may make a declaration withdrawing authority to operate gaming machines from a particular licensed office or cancel such a declaration. Declarations and their cancellation must be noted on the bookmaking office licence.

Regulation 2 inserts a new Part (Part VI) in the form of a bookmaking office licence prescribed in the Schedule to the 1987 Regulations. Part VI makes provision for a clerk of petty sessions to note the bookmaking office licence when a court of summary jurisdiction makes a declaration prohibiting the use of gaming machines in a particular licensed office or cancelling such a declaration.
