Question for written answer E-001768-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Paul Tang (S&D)

 Subject:  Disbanding of the Expert Group on Gambling Services

In 2018, the Commission put an end to the regulatory cooperation between national gambling authorities that had been taking place for six years. Regulatory cooperation between supervising authorities is essential to ensuring that markets function properly and, in particular, to protecting citizens and consumers. It is even more important for EU Member States to work together to regulate non-harmonised and fast-growing sectors like online gambling in order to protect consumers and prevent fraud.

— Did the Commission conclude that the group had achieved its objectives?

— Does it agree that regulatory cooperation can help national regulatory authorities to enforce national law and protect consumers?

— Will it reinstate the Expert Group on Gambling Services?
