Parliamentary committees to scrutinise racing levy changes

first_img The UK government’s plans to change how the horserace betting levy is collected and distributed have hit a stumbling block after it was revealed that committees from both houses of the UK Parliament are to scruitinise the plans.The regulatory committees of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords will meet Wednesday (November 21st) to run the rule over the proposals. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has already set out its intention to abolish the Horseracing Betting Levy Board and move its powers to the Gambling Commission and Racing Authority, a body representing the British Horseracing Authority, the Racecourse Association and the Horsemen’s Group. According to the government, this will help save on administration costs and also free up additional funding for the British horseracing industry and overall horse welfare. However, the move could be halted after the House of Lords Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee (DPRRC) flagged up a number of concerns with the Order. The DPRRC said it is uncertain about the appropriateness of the draft Order and whether it would pass a number of statutory tests in order to pass into law. The committee will now meet with the House of Commons Regulatory Reform Committee (RRC) to air its concerns. Mims Davies, the new Minister for Sport, and other officials from the DCMS will speak at the meeting in Westminster. This means the draft Order will be subjected to “super-affirmative procedure”, whereby Ministers must consider proposals from both committees before they decide whether to proceed with the proposed changes.“The DPRRC has reported that it has concerns about this piece of legislation and welcomes the opportunity to join with the House of Commons Regulatory Reform Committee to subject it to the further scrutiny we believe it requires,” the committee’s chairman Lord Blencathra commented.Stephen McPartland MP, chair of the Regulatory Reform Committee, added: “The government’s proposed changes could alter how horseracing is funded and change the racing and gambling industries that underpin the sport. “Bringing together our committees adds to the quality of scrutiny, holding the government to account and ensuring legislation is effective, appropriate and works for all.” Both the DPRRC and RRC have responsibility for scrutinising Legislative Reform Orders, government proposals to amend primary legislation to remove or reduce burdens or promote better regulation. The committees will put the proposals to a number of tests – as set out in the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 – after which they can establish whether secondary legislation is required.Neither the DPRRC nor RRC responded to requests from iGamingBuiness.com to comment on the story.Image: Greggy1900 Finance Parliamentary committees to scrutinise racing levy changes Email Address Government proposals include shifting more powers to the Gambling Commission Subscribe to the iGaming newslettercenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Sports betting 20th November 2018 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

LSE investors! Tech shares I’m researching now – part I I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Technology shares have fallen hard of late. Yet I believe our economy is resilient and the end of the coronavirus bear market is inevitable. The market decline also provides opportunities to add to existing positions or to initiate new positions.Therefore today I’d like to introduce a number of FTSE 100 names that you may want to research further. This article will be followed several others so that I can offer a detailed discussion on FTSE 250 and AIM-listed stocks, as well as funds that focus on technology.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The tech sectorBroadly speaking, tech companies develop, manufacture or offer technology-based services or products. The sector encompasses a wide range of businesses, ranging from telecommunications, to personal computers, semiconductors, e-commerce, software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, fintech, online social networks, artificial intelligence (AI), and internet of things (IoT).We first tend to think of companies headquartered in Silicon Valley or Seattle in the US, such as Amazon, Apple, Google, or Microsoft, when we mention tech stocks. Nonetheless the UK also has promising technology businesses with plenty of scope for future growth.London Stock Exchange’s techMARK market “was launched in November 1999 by the Exchange to create new opportunities for companies whose business is dependent on technological innovation, and for investors in those companies”. And the FTSE techMARK All-Share Index comprises all companies included within the techMARK market. There are currently 33 UK-listed companies in the index. The list includes large-cap as well as medium and smaller companies, which are growing fast and offer potential for impressive share price gains. Investors may use the index as a starting point for further research.FTSE 100 sharesOur blue-chip FTSE 100 index also offers several possibilities for investors to consider. You may not necessarily think of many of them as tech stocks. Yet technology and innovation are important for their existence and growth.And most of them are currently trading at lower multiples than we have seen in months (or even years). Here are several of business I believe will continue to offer value in the long run.One of the most successful stocks of the past decade has been Aveva. It provides engineering and industrial software. Then there’s global defence contractor BAE Systems. Unlike many other companies whose share prices have crashed in 2020, year-to-date the stock is down, but only by 4.6%.Telecoms giants BT and Vodafone are two tech-based names that may increasingly benefit from the current stay-at-home economy. Multinational consumer credit reporting company Experian may become another business to ride the Covid-19 wave. Many consumers and business are likely to rely on credit data as uncertainty begins to take its toll on many economies.Stock exchange and financial information company London Stock Exchange Group may also come out of the current volatility in acceptable financial shape. The lockdown shouldn’t affect its business model much.Engineering group Halma specialises in products for hazard detection and life protection. Although not a household name, its stock has been a robust long-term investment.Finally, online retailer Ocado is regularly in the news. The group is currently working around the clock to answer the increase in demand for online grocery shopping. From warehouse to delivery routes, the business is highly automated. In fact, in late 2019, the group successfully sold its automated technology to Japan, a leader in robot technology. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Too often a dog or cat will hide away or even cower at the back of their kennel or pen, so would-be new owners will just move on by.“But we think Glass could help show off the real personalities of our animals, offering access to videos of them playing stress-free in our paddocks, fields and cat pens, whilst a visitor is actually standing at their kennel, and this would give our animals a much better chance of finding a home.”She added that Glass might offer Battersea’s visitors hands-free access to photos, videos and profiles of dogs and cats as they move around their rehoming centres.While the priority currently is to consider using Google Glass to help rehome the charity’s animals, the charity’s fundraising team will be looking at ways to engage our visitors when they are on site, with history about the Home and ways in which they can help fund the care of the animals. Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has been exploring the potential of Google Glass, the wearable spectacles-like device which connects to the internet via wifi or smartphone.It was one of just a small group of UK organisations, and the only animal charity, invited by Google to test the product before it launched its Glass Explorer programme this week.Battersea tested how the technology could benefit its rehoming and visitor experiences.

Davenport: A small group with a big heart

first_img “You don’t have to look far to see those who are in need,” Davenport said. “The needs are there throughout the year but, they just seem greater at Christmas and your heart wants to do more.”The year 2020 has brought about many changes and Davenport said it was important to him and to the others involved over the years that they continue to help families in need at Christmastime.“Usually, we get list of names of families that needed assistance through the schools, but, with school being out this year, we were late getting the names of families,” Davenport said. “But, the need was there for five families and we all agreed that, even at almost the last minute, we could help.”As they had done for the last five years or more, Robert Hughes, Macon Morris, Eddie Bailey, Neil and Kathy Sneed and Davenport pooled their efforts and resources to make sure the needs of the families were met. “We wanted to meet the needs of clothes, shoes and food, first,” Hughes said. “Then, we wanted to make Christmas 2020 extra special for the children with a few toys and every kid needs a bicycle.”Even though the group was late getting started, they brought Christmas to five families in what has been a difficult year for most everyone in some way.“The best part of Christmas is giving,” Bailey said. “And, I think, especially this year.

Biden bans LGBT-based housing discrimination

first_img Email Address* Message* Tags The department also ended the course for the so-called “midnight rule” proposed by the Trump administration, which would have allowed shelters to base placement decisions on biological sex, not gender. The rule, which was never finalized, could have resulted in transgender women being put in men’s homeless shelters.This likely won’t be the last of housing policy changes for Biden. On Jan. 27, Biden ordered his administration to review the government’s role in promoting discriminatory housing policies. In doing so, he specifically named two rules that were scrapped under President Donald Trump regarding systemic segregation and implicit bias in housing and lending.[Bloomberg News] — Sasha JonesContact Sasha Jones President Joe Biden (iStock, Getty/Photo Illustration by Kevin Rebong)The federal government will ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity under the Fair Housing Act, and will investigate complaints from LGBTQ tenants and homebuyers since Jan. 20, 2020.The Department of Housing and Urban Development becomes the first agency to fulfill an executive order regarding sex discrimination that President Joe Biden issued on his first day in office, Bloomberg News reported.The agency has only received approximately 200 such complaints in the past year, but officials expect more to be filed as word of the new policy spreads.Read moreBiden exec order lays foundation for restoring fair-housing ruleBiden’s fair housing face-offSenate clears path for $1.9T package including rent relief Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Joe BidenReal Estate and PoliticsU.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Full Name*last_img read more
