Supplementary written evidence submitted by The Bingo Association (GA 94)

Following the session, I wanted to clarify some of the statistics that arose around Gambling Commission costs as we fear that we may have unintentionally provided some incorrect data. We have now liaised with the Gambling Commission and confirmed that the current costs for a bingo operator are £100 for a "Ancillary Remote License" application fee and an annual fee of £25.

The Gambling Commission have also confirmed to us that there is no proposal to increase the cost of the Ancillary Remote Licence.
