Abstract

Barry Sheerman MP examines the proliferation of betting machines in the UK and the social consequences of this. Compounding this, it seems that the industry is targeting the most vulnerable, with betting shops disproportionately present in areas of high unemployment. The onus is on the betting shops to prove that their products are not damaging the lives of British citizens and in doing this they have fallen short.
