Direction to suspend remote operating licence

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

3(1)After the review request period has ended, the Commissioners may direct the Gambling Commission to suspend the remote operating licence if the breach specified in the final notice has not been remedied in full to the satisfaction of the Commissioners.

(2)But if the Commissioners have been required to review the decision, or an appeal has been brought against the decision, a direction may be given under sub-paragraph (1) only if—

(a)the decision to give the final notice has been upheld (in whole or in part) and the period within which any appeal or further appeal may ordinarily be brought has ended,

(b)the proceedings on the review, appeal or any further appeal have been abandoned, withdrawn or discontinued, or

(c)the proceedings on the review, appeal or any further appeal are in progress and—

(i)the Commissioners consider that the holder of the remote operating licence usually lives in or, if a body corporate, is legally constituted in a country or territory with which the United Kingdom does not have satisfactory arrangements for the enforcement of liabilities,

(ii)the breach was a failure to pay an amount of general betting duty, pool betting duty or remote gaming duty, and

(iii)the holder of the licence has not given to the Commissioners such security as appears to them adequate for the payment of the amount of duty that remains due.

(3)A direction under this paragraph may include provision directing the Gambling Commission as to how it is to exercise its powers under section 118(4) of the Gambling Act 2005 (time and duration of suspension and saving and transitional provision).

(4)In this paragraph “the review request period” means the period of 30 days beginning with the date of the final notice, subject to any extension given under section 15D of FA 1994.
