(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 survey—at least twice the percentage of those who took drugs, drank alcohol, or smoked.
