Gambling with Lives said that there would be a number of end goals to the project, including people stopping gambling altogether, improving their mental health, feeling they had been adequately support, having a sense of greater empowerment and understanding the impact of their gambling habits on their own lives and other around them. Gambling with Lives also set out how the programme would run, including the initial stage of promoting it and running education programmes to make people aware of it, as well as running professional outreach and screening projects to identify people suitable for the scheme. Lord Foster of Bath, chair of peers for Gambling Reform, added: “As parliamentarians work on improving gambling legislation to tackle gambling harm, it’s great to see people who have been harmed by gambling at the forefront of the push to enable more access to evidence-based treatment. After treatment takes place, the programme would follow up with all participants to see their progress and evaluate whether further support and treatment is required. British charity Gambling with Lives has proposed a new treatment pathway for those experiencing gambling-related harm. The new proposal comes after Gambling with Lives earlier this month announced the launch of the Big Step campaign, which is calling for an end to all gambling promotion in football. Regions: UK & Ireland The programme would then identify the next source of action, including information and education on problem gambling, early help and advice, motivational interviews, peer support and therapeutic treatment. This would also be the case for those contacting the programme on behalf of others, with advice and support to be made available. Insights from this process would be used to raise the standard of the system of gambling treatment and care nationally, including offering a model for making treatment and care for gambling harms a part of NHS integrated care systems. The charity has applied for regulatory settlement funding from the Gambling Commission to support the project, with the idea of running a pilot of the scheme with partners in Greater Manchester The charity is also keen to ensure people can easily access help and achieve what they want from this support, as well as to prevent suicides linked to gambling problems. Tags: Gambling With Lives Gambling with Lives said that the scheme would be embedded within existing health, care and public service provision, with frontline professionals to be made aware of the pathway so as they can refer people to the scheme if necessary. 25th May 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Email Address Gambling with Lives sets out new care and treatment pathway Social responsibility Setting out the core aims of the pathway in the proposal, the charity said that overarching aim is to allow more people to access help and treatment, adding that early identification of problem gambling will be key. Topics: Social responsibility “It is essential that evidence-based services are led by the NHS to ensure quality clinical standards,” Bowden-Jones said. “I welcome this project and the work of people harmed by gambling in helping us to ensure that services are integrated with existing NHS pathways and really meet the needs of our population.” “It is essential that people harmed by gambling are at the forefront of designing care and treatment for gambling disorder,” Gambling with Lives co-founder Liz Ritchie said. “We know how few people access treatment, how few feel helped, and this design for a care and treatment pathway aims to redress this.” “Our recommendation for the introduction of a smart levy should help fund such treatment, ensure it’s free of industry influence and led by the NHS. We welcome the creative work of Gambling with Lives in this area which is rooted in the needs of families.” The scheme would bring together people harmed by gambling and health experts, with the aim of providing a treatment and support system for people with gambling disorders and families affected by gambling. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones, founder and director of the National Problem Gambling Clinic, welcomed the proposal, saying integration within the wider NHS network would help those suffering with gambling-related harm. Backed by English League Two team Forest Green Rovers, the campaign aims to see the end of all gambling sponsorship and advertising in football, where currently there are thought to be 55 different gambling sponsorship or partnership deals with 44 football clubs in the top two divisions in England. Gambling with Lives said the service would work in collaboration with the National Health Service (NHS) in Great Britain and complement existing treatment and support systems. In terms of how the new scheme was developed, Gambling with Lives said it staged a series of focus groups with people who had live experience of gambling problems, as well as workshops with input from gambling operators, other support services, clinicians and expert by experience groups to help shape how the system would run.

RSF_en Receive email alerts News UkraineEurope – Central Asia News to go further Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media ————————————————————-Adoption of decree on online registration worrying26 May 2005Reporters Without Borders expressed concern at a new decree governing registration of websites, put forward by the Ministry of Transport and Communication, that has already come under attack from the Ukrainian media. Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV February 26, 2021 Find out more UkraineEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Ukraine Organisation Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority September 7, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the Ukrainian transport and telecommunication ministry’s decision to rescind a May 2005 decree requiring online publications to register with the authorities. The requirement was a threat to free expression and had been criticised by many local news media and organisations.The ministry said the decree had been rescinded because it did not respect “the principles of state regulatory policy in the field of IT development.”Aside from a few repressive countries such as China, only Bahrain has made it obligatory for online publications to register. Reporters Without Borders and the representative on freedom of the media of the Organisation of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) took a clear position on this issue in a joint statement about online free expression in June.They said: “Any requirement to register websites with governmental authorities is not acceptable. Unlike licensing scarce resources such as broadcasting frequencies, an abundant infrastructure like the Internet does not justify official assignment of licenses. On the contrary, mandatory registration of online publications might stifle the free exchange of ideas, opinions, and information on the Internet.” News Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the Ukrainian transport and telecommunication ministry’s decision to rescind a May 2005 decree requiring online publications to register with the authorities. The requirement was a threat to free expression and had been criticised by many local news media and organisations. The decree, put forward by the ministry on 27 April, came into effect on 18 May after it was registered with the Justice Ministry. It appeared to have been drawn up originally for both public and private sites, but then declared optional when it provoked strong criticism.Among internal critics is director general of the legal consulting firm Media House, Mykola Kniazhytski, who called it “an absurd attempt to introduce Internet censorship”. “Only a court can punish people who break laws on the Internet,” he said.Bahrain recently introduced a similar measure but appears likely to agree to amendments following widespread criticism. Compulsory registration has so far been adopted only by countries that trample free expression, such as China and Vietnam, the organisation pointed out.”This step could damage freedom of expression on the Internet. We will be watching closely to see that this registration procedure does not become obligatory for private websites,” the organisation said.To be allowed to appear, sites must not call for “a change of government through violence” or support “terrorism”, not damage individuals’ “honour”, “dignity” or “reputation” and not post “swear words” or pornographic content. Reporters Without Borders said the language is however too vague to guarantee press freedom if it were to be applied to private websites.The decree, adopted on 18 May, also specifies that an “administrator” will decide on the registration of the website, opening the way to administrative censorship of the Internet, said the organisation.”The way the decree is worded appears to suggest that all electronic media – private and public – will be forced to register in future. A recent statement from the Ministry of Transport and Communication that it would only be compulsory for government-run sites, has not completely reassured us,” it said.”We therefore wish to make our position clear on this. Demanding that those running private sites make themselves known to the authorities, linking their registration to a series of vague conditions, will push most of them into secrecy and others into self-censorship. In any case this type of measure should be debated by Ukraine’s parliament and not the subject of a simple government decree,” it said.

Same is reflected by the pendency of service matters before not only the Administrative Tribunals but also in the High Courts across the nation. One of the leading judgments pertaining to the powers of Tribunals constituted either under Article 323A or under Article 323B is certainly L. Chandra Kumar Vs Union Of India And Others (1997) 3 SCC 261. What is largely understood by the aforesaid judgment is that by virtue of Section 14 of the Administrative Tribunal’s Act, 1985, the Central Administrative Tribunal is the forum of first instance for the agitation of a service matter defined under Section 3(q) of the Administrative Tribunal Act, 1985 and that orders/judgments of Central Administrative Tribunal is judicially reviewable by High Courts under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India in the absence of the provisions of statutory appeal in the Administrative Tribunal Act, 1985. Additionally, it was also held that under Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985, Tribunals were vested with the powers to punish the parties for its contempt. This power is necessary to curb the lethargy of the Ministries/Departments and to compel them to scrupulously comply with the orders of the Tribunals. Measures like seeking the compliance affidavit, directing the presence of the officers responsible for the compliance of orders etc are taken by the Administrative Tribunals to check its own Contempt. It is axiomatic that litigants (unfortunately mostly the official respondents) may be aggrieved by orders passed by the Tribunal while exercising its contempt jurisdiction. Will such orders be also a subject of judicial review by the High Court? The answer is an emphatic no in the light of Supreme Court’s judgment in T. Sudhakar Prasad v. Govt. of AP, (2001) 1 SCC 516. The ratio of the aforesaid judgment was followed by the Supreme Court once again in R. Mohajan v. Shefali Sengupta (2012) 4 SCC 761. Yet, more often than not, High Courts do interfere with the orders passed by the Central Administrative Tribunals whilst exercising its contempt jurisdiction. The Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi had once ordered official Respondents in an Original Application to amend the Recruitment Rules of a cadre in terms of one Office Memorandum passed by Department of Personnel and Training within a period of ninety days of receipt of the certified copy. As is customary, the same order was not complied with. The Original Applicant moved a contempt petition. Under its contempt jurisdiction, Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi ordered the presence of a very high ranking bureaucrat on the next date. The bureaucrat filed a Writ Petition before the High Court of Delhi and challenged the order of the Tribunal limited to the extent of seeking his presence on the next date. I happened to oppose the aforesaid petition. My research would land me to couple of decisions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court which would make it clear as crystal that the only forum to challenge the orders of Central Administrative Tribunal passed while exercising its contempt jurisdiction is only the Supreme Court. Banking upon aforesaid judgments, I raised a preliminary objection on the maintainability of the petition. It was discouraging that instead of addressing the issue of maintainability, the Division Bench of the High Court played a balancing act. An option was offered by the Bench that either it would stay the impugned order and hear the arguments on the preliminary objection or it would give a last opportunity to the official Respondents to comply with the order of the Central Administrative Tribunal. The Clients who were present in Court absolutely had no penchant to see their boss being scolded by the Central Administrative Tribunal and hence instructed me take the stern direction of the Hon’ble Court to the official Respondents to comply with the order of the Tribunal. While the wrath of the Court towards the official Respondents did gave hopes to my Client, the order of the High Court was wholly without jurisdiction. There was no question of staying the impugned order nor was there any scope of entertaining the Petition at all since the High Court was lacking jurisdiction to judicially review orders of the Tribunal passed under its contempt jurisdiction. The distinction between the Tribunal’s orders passed under Section 14 of the Act and those passed under Section 17 i.e. under its contempt jurisdiction has been explained by the Supreme Court in T. Sudhakar Prasad v. Govt. of AP, (2001) 1 SCC 516 and further in R. Mohajan v. Shefali Sengupta (2012) 4 SCC 761. In Mohajan’s case certain directions were issued by the Central administrative Tribunal, Calcutta Bench. In order to comply with those directions three months time was given to the official Respondents. Due to the non compliance on the part of Official Respondents, Applicants were compelled to file a contempt petition. In the contempt petition by an order dated 11.06.2010, the Tribunal finally ordered the officers of official Respondents to be personally present before it on the next date. The aforesaid order was directly challenged in the Supreme Court by the official Respondents. The Original Applicants raised a preliminary objection as to the maintainability of the appeal and argued that by virtue court of L. Chandra Kumar’s case, the official respondents were supposed to approach the High Court first. To counter the aforesaid contention, the government/official Respondent/Appellant in the Supreme Court would place reliance on Sudhakar’s case and argue that the petition is maintainable. The Supreme Court held that the directions contained in the impugned order were passed in contempt petition and hence the aggrieved party is free to directly approach the Supreme Court in the light of Sudharkar’s case. Supreme Court discussed the Sudhakar’s judgement wherein it scrutinized the provisions of Contempt of Courts Act as well as the Administrative Tribunals Act. Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunal Act, 1985 provided that a Tribunal shall have, and exercise, the same jurisdiction, powers and authority in respect of contempt of itself as a High Court has and may exercise and, for this purpose, the provisions of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971. Further Section 17(a) of the Act would provide that the references in the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 to a High Court shall be construed as including a reference to such Tribunal. Section 19 (1) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 provides that an appeal shall lie as of right from any order or decision of High Court in the exercise of its jurisdiction to punish for contempt. Further Section 19(4) provides that an appeal under Section 19 (1) shall be filed in case of an appeal to the Supreme Court, within sixty days, from the date of the order appealed against. The provisions of the Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985 specifically provide that the Tribunal will have to resort to Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 for initiating contempt proceedings. Hence, Supreme Court in Sudhakar’s case held that Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunals Act is a piece of legislation by reference. Resultantly, the provisions of Contempt of Courts Act remain unchanged. Supreme Court in Sudhakar’s case conjointly read Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunals Act and Section of the Contempt of Court Act and held that an order passed by the Tribunal in contempt proceedings is appealable under Section 19 of the Act to the Supreme Court only. In Sudhakar’s case the Supreme Court also clarified that the case of L. Chandra Kumar does not leave any room for the High Court’s to judicially review an order passed by the Tribunal under its contempt jurisdiction when statutory remedy of appeal envisaged under Section 19 of the Contempt of Courts Act is pre-existing. Resultantly, in R. Mohajan’s case, the appeal by the official Respondent was found to be maintainable. Unfortunately, of late, the relationship between the High Courts and the Administrative Tribunals has gone bitter. While the Hon’ble Delhi High Court has directed the Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi to undergo course correction, the Central Administrative Tribunal too had expressed its inconvenience with increased number of High Court’s remanding back orders. In another case the Delhi High Court would go on to the extent of holding that it feels like directing audio-video recording of the court proceedings of the Tribunal in the extra ordinary situation prevailing there. Under such circumstance, overreaching of jurisdiction of either the Tribunal or the High Court is not going provide respite to the struggling litigant.Views are personal only Next Story

TheScottish Executive is to grant legal aid for employees to hire solicitors torepresent them in employment tribunal cases. Theprovisions are expected to come into force on 15 January in Scotland, but willnot apply in England or Wales. It isexpected that the move will lead to a considerable increase in the numbers ofcases being brought by employees over issues such as wrongful dismissal, sexdiscrimination and race discrimination.The CBI inScotland called the decision “a chancer’s charter”. CBIScotland’s Allan Hogarth said, “It will only encourage more spurious tribunalcases. If this only applies in Scotland it will put us at a huge disadvantagecompared to businesses down south. This is another reason why many companiesmay decide not to come to Scotland.”Howeverthe move has been seen by lawyers as a pre-emptive strike against potentialchallenges under the European Convention of Human Rights. Lawyersstate that the current tribunal system is itself in breach of Article 6 ofECHR, which entitles everyone to a fair hearing and representation at thathearing.l Seriousdisruption to council services across Scotland is set to continue after thelatest round of talks aimed at resolving the pay dispute ended withoutagreement last week. The number of staff on strike is now 1,300.
