The Gambling Commission has postponed this year’s local authority returns in light of Covid-19.

In their communication to licensing authorities, the commission said: “In light of the collective effort required by Local Authorities in the fight against Covid-19 up and down the country, the Gambling Commission has taken the decision to postpone this year’s annual LA returns process.
