Government initiates measures to combat addiction. Ministerial meeting following the implementation of the Casino Law.

The Integrated Resort (IR) Promotion Law, which lifts the ban on casinos, came into force on 26 January. In response, the Government held a meeting of relevant ministers at the Prime Minister’s Office to discuss measures against gambling addiction. In light of criticism from the ruling and opposition parties that measures against addiction were neglected in the process of enacting the law, the government has begun to study the establishment of a law.

The meeting was attended by Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Yasuhisa Shiozaki, National Public Safety Commission Chairman Jun Matsumoto and others. At the meeting, Mr Suga stated that “it is necessary to take thorough measures to prevent easy gambling dependence, including in existing public sports and amusement,” and instructed that concrete measures be compiled as soon as possible.
