On behalf of the BGC, our members and the 119,000 people whose jobs depend on the regulated betting and gaming industry, we would like to thank Conservative MPs for the huge support they have shown us this year. From the high street to hospitality and from tech to tourism, our industry generates £4.5bn in tax and contributes £7.7bn to the economy in gross value added. We are enormously grateful to those Conservative MPs who have witnessed at first hand how, through our support for the Government’s Plan For Jobs, we are now ready to help Britain build back better.

Here are some short videos of Conservative MPs visiting our members to see the fantastic work they do.

Conservative MPs have also made clear their support for the regulated industry in a series of articles written for the ConservativeHome website
