Almost Half a Million Child Gamblers in England and Wales
(Christian Institute) Around 450,000 children between the ages of 11 and 15 in England and Wales gambled in a week, according to a Gambling Commission report.
Of those, it is thought that 9,000 are problem gamblers.
The Young People and Gambling report, published last week, found that 16 per cent of children of this age had gambled in the week prior to the surveyat least twice the percentage of those who took drugs, drank alcohol, or smoked.
