RACING AND BETTING ACT 1983 - SECT 104

Remote clerks

    (1)     Subject to subsection (2), upon application in writing made by a bookmaker to the Commission, the Commission may grant a permit to a person who is then licensed by the Commission as a key employee, and who is nominated by that bookmaker, to act as a bookmaker's remote clerk for the purpose of conducting part of that bookmaker's business of bookmaking at a place remote from the place where that bookmaker is permitted by a licence granted under section 90 or his permit to carry on bookmaking.

    (2)     A permit granted under subsection (1) shall not authorize a bookmaker's remote clerk to conduct part of a bookmaker's business of bookmaking in a place where or at a time when a bookmaker is normally permitted or could reasonably be permitted to conduct his business.

    (3)     Where a permit is granted under subsection (1) in relation to a racing venue, the Commission shall notify the club concerned of the granting of the permit.

    (4)     A bookmaker shall not nominate or have authorized more than one bookmaker's remote clerk at any one time.

    (5)     A registered bookmaker's remote clerk shall not conduct part of a bookmaker's business of bookmaking at a meeting under a permit under subsection (1) unless:

        (a)     the bookmaker concerned conducts his business of bookmaking at that meeting; and

        (b)     all bets made by or on behalf of that bookmaker's remote clerk are made on behalf of the bookmaker concerned and are aggregated for the purposes of this Act with all other bets made by or on behalf of that bookmaker.

    (6)     A bookmaker's remote clerk shall, for the purposes of this Act, be deemed to be the bookmaker during the period covered by a permit under subsection (1) and shall be subject to this Act and the Regulations to the same extent as he would be subject if he were himself the holder of a bookmaker's licence or permit.

    (7)     The Commission may, in its discretion, grant or refuse to grant a permit sought under subsection (1), and may withdraw a permit granted by it, without assigning a reason for the refusal or withdrawal, and shall notify the club concerned of a refusal or withdrawal of a permit.
