Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order increases the fees to be charged in relation to the renewal and transfer of gaming and bingo licences in Scotland under the Gaming Act 1968 (“the 1968 Act”). Fees are increased in terms of articles 2(a) and (b) and 3(b)(i) and (c)(i) of the Order. The increases are in the range of 4% to 10%.

The other provisions in article 3 do not include substantive fee increases but alter references in subsection (4) of section 48 of the 1968 Act so that the text of that subsection accurately reflects present fee levels in all respects.
