As part of all this, I was also pleased this week to start the formal process of scrapping a particularly bonkers pair of regulations that came into being as part of the 2005 Gambling Act. Did you know, for example, that it's against the law to employ anyone under 18 in any capacity or in any job on a racecourse where betting takes place? Or that you can't locate a fruit machine in an 'airside bar' at a British airport? Neither rule has any logical basis.
Any more examples for Licesing Minister Mr Penrose?
