UK Government to 'look again' at devolving betting powers

The UK government has agreed to "reflect" on whether Wales should be given the power to ban fixed-odds betting terminals.

Wales Office Minister Lord Bourne said he will look at the issue again after protests in the House of Lords.

Gambling is currently reserved to Westminster, although responsibility for high-stakes machines is being devolved to Scotland.

Labour peer and AM Baroness Morgan tabled an amendment to the Wales Bill to give Wales responsibility over them.
