Question for written answer E-006015-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Jiří Payne (EFDD)

 Subject:  Regulation of gambling in the Czech Republic
 Answer in writing 

It is clear to everyone involved that the current system for regulating gambling in the Czech Republic is made up of a disparate and unsystematic mix of rules and laws. In its case law, the European Court of Justice has repeatedly stressed that such inconsistencies and unsystematic attempts to monitor poorly defined objectives are an unacceptable way to manage gambling in the Member States.

Next year, an assessment of the current system for regulating gambling in the Czech Republic will be carried out, and this assessment will have to be reported to the European Commission.

How is the Commission planning to ensure that Member States’ national rules are in line with EC law and provide legal certainty to entities operating in the sector?
