Gambling problems no worse that in the UK, minister claims

JERSEY does not have a bigger gambling problem than any similar community in the UK, says Economic Development Minister Alan Maclean.
On day two of a Jersey Evening Post series of articles on gambling in Jersey, the minister responsible for gambling policy says that there are problems with compulsive gambling, but that the number of people affected is very low, and not ‘out of sync’ with the UK.
Senator Maclean and Jersey Gambling Commission chief executive Jason Lane give their views on the state of gambling in Jersey in interviews in today’s JEP.
