The Problem Gambling Foundation is welcoming a move by the Health Ministry to delay the cutting of its funding and contracts for addiction services.

The foundation was set to lose 70 percent of its funding with the majority of its contract going to the Salvation Army.

Legal action has forced the Ministry to put that on hold until February.

Foundation chief executive Graeme Ramsey says this allows them to keep their services going.

"This gives them certainty, this means that upheaval in the sect is avoided and it really means our case will be heard in court and we think that we've got a good case."
