(This note is not part of the Regulations)
Section 282 of the Gambling Act 2005 (‘the Act’) authorises up to two Category C or D gaming machines to be made available on premises with an on-premises alcohol licence (a premises licence under Part 3 of the Licensing Act 2003 (c. 17), which authorises the supply of alcohol for consumption on the licensed premises). It does this by exempting such premises from the offence of using premises, or causing or permitting premises to be used for specified kinds of gambling (section 37 of the Act), and the offence of making a gaming machine available for use (section 242 of the Act). These exemptions only apply if the person who holds the on-premises alcohol licence has notified the licensing authority of his intention to make gaming machines available, and has paid a prescribed fee; regulation 3 prescribes this fee.
A full Regulatory Impact Assessment of the costs and benefits of these Regulations is available from the Gaming and Lotteries Team, Department for Culture, Media and Sport, 2-4 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5DH, telephone 020 7211 6486.
