Answer given by Mr Barnier on behalf of the Commission

The Commission is currently reviewing all pending infringement proceedings and complaints in the area of gambling services.

Following the adoption of the communication, the Commission services contacted the Member States against whom infringement cases and complaints are open(2) and requested the legal and (updated) factual information necessary for the assessment of compatibility of national gambling rules with EC law. The Commission is now finalising its assessment and will take necessary action in due time.

(2)In total, the Commission is investigating more than 75 registered complaints and infringement cases against 20 Member States, most of them in the area of online gambling.
