Nick Rust, Chief Executive of the BHA said,

“With the final, outstanding approval now secured from the European Commission, today marks one of the last few steps in the process of securing a fair return from all betting on our sport. We look forward to receiving confirmation shortly from Government of when the new legislation will take effect.”

Rust added, “We look forward to working closely with bookmakers to build an exciting future for both our industries. The new Levy has the potential to put an end to unnecessary divisions between racing and betting as it creates a level playing field, removes the need for annual negotiations on the rate and provides long-term certainty for both parties.”
