Spain Will Restrict Gambling Ads To Early Morning, Say Reports

The restrictions would apply to adverts on radio and TV, but the decree may include exemptions for state lottery provider SELAE.

That caveat is expected to form a central part of discussions scheduled on Thursday between Garzón and private operator trade group CEJUEGO.
