"Regarding today's news on the Triennial Review - it is disappointing news for Ladbrokes Coral but we welcome the certainty of the decision made by the Government.
There will need to be a review of our shop size / structure as a result and whilst we do expect shop closures and job losses, we are some way from confirming the extent at the present time.
Ladbrokes Coral will not be fighting the decision; we will simply re-group and work out future plans to retain as many shops and colleagues as we can.
In Scotland, traditional betting products are, and always have been the main stays of our business, so hopefully we will continue to see the same faces in our shops and a business as usual approach can be adopted.
We pride ourselves in promoting responsible gambling and providing a social environment for many customer across Scotland - this will of course continue regardless of decisions made to the industry."
Chris Hector, Regional Director, Ladbrokes Coral.
