The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has a new chairman and a new Commissioner after the Alderney Government made two new appointments to the regulator. Lord Faulkner of Worcester has been promoted to the role of Chairman of the Commission, and Christopher Moger QC is a new member of the Commission.
The Commission consists of a Chairman and three members who are appointed for a term of five years.
Lord Faulkner, a current member of the Commission, will succeed John Godfrey, who retires in May of this year, whilst Moger will replace Lord Faulkner as a member of the Commission. Godfrey was the first Chairman of the Commission and retires after a period of 14 years.
The new look board face a challenging year as remote operators weigh up the costs associated with the UK government’s point of consumption tax which is due to be implemented in December.
