Closed petition Remove scratch cards from the front of counters in shops
I want the government to enforce the movement of scratch cards away from the front of counters in shops.
Millions of people are suffering with gambling addiction and are trying to recover and acknowledging their triggers. Cigarettes are hidden and yet scratch cards and other gambling products are displayed proudly at the front of the desk, begging to be an impulse buy and it is unavoidable as you have to go the till. If they were hidden or in an area you aren't forced to go to, it's easier to avoid the trigger and easier for the shop workers to support people with a problem.
