*Gibraltar Betting & Gaming Association Ltd v Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport and another

European Union – Freedom of movement. The Administrative Court held that the claimant had not established that the new regime under the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act 2014 (the 2014 Act), which entailed a change from a system of regulation based upon place of supply to one based upon place of consumption, was unlawful under European or domestic law. It served a series of legitimate objectives and there was no proper basis for concluding that it would be discriminatory. Further, the claimant's passporting proposal would not meet the legitimate objectives, or prove effective or achievable.
