star this property answer text <p>An option to move Parliament out of the Palace of Westminster to a new purpose-built building was included in the <a href="https://restorationandrenewal.parliament.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Pre-Feasibility-Study-Oct12.pdf" target="_blank">Restoration and Renewal Pre-Feasibility Study</a> published in 2012. The House of Lords Commission, then known as the House Committee, reviewed that study on 30 October 2012. It decided to rule out the option of constructing a new building away from Westminster and agreed that no further analysis would be undertaken on this option. The House of Commons Commission had already taken a similar view. These commitments were reaffirmed by the Joint Committee on the Palace of Westminster in 2016 and in the resolutions of both Houses following the debates in 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government considered the evidence on gambling advertising as part of the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures. The response was published in May 2018, and can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-proposals-for-changes-to-gaming-machines-and-social-responsibility-measures</p><p> </p><p>Strict rules already ensure gambling adverts are not targeted at, or appeal to, children, or exploit vulnerable people. These apply across all media, including online. The Review set out a package of measures to strengthen existing protections further, including tough new guidance from the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) on protecting vulnerable people and children, and a multi-million pound safer gambling advertising campaign. This launched in February and is aimed at reducing risky and impulsive gambling.</p><p> </p><p>The gambling industry also recently announced that it will introduce a whistle-to-whistle ban on adverts during daytime (pre-9pm) sporting events in response to public concerns. This will come into force on 1 August. We will continue to monitor issues around gambling advertising and consider any new evidence carefully.</p>
