star this property answer text <p>DCMS requested advice from the Gambling Commission on potential reforms to society lotteries following the publication of the Select Committee’s report in March 2015. The Gambling Commission were asked to make recommendations considering three high level objectives:</p><p> </p><ol><li>The regulatory framework for society lotteries should not be overly burdensome and new entrants should not face unnecessary barriers;</li></ol><p> </p><ol start="2"><li>Public trust and confidence in society lotteries and the good causes with which they are associated should be maintained;</li></ol><p> </p><ol start="3"><li>Reform should not jeopardise the position of the National Lottery and its returns to good causes.</li></ol><p> </p><p>This advice was published in June 2018 alongside the consultation on society lotteries which closed on 7 September 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Evidence from the Gambling Commission suggests that to date society lottery sales have not significantly impacted the National Lottery. Any changes must maintain this balance, enabling society lotteries to grow without detriment to the National Lottery.</p><p> </p><p>The consultation received over 1,600 responses and my officials are now in the process of considering the range of views that were submitted, including evidence about the potential impact on the National Lottery. I hope to formally respond to the consultation in the first half of 2019.</p>

The advice reported that to date, society lotteries have not had a statistically significant effect on National Lottery sales. The consultation presented the Government’s preferred options and sought views on legislative options to reform the society lottery sector. The consultation closed on 7 September and we received over 1,600 responses. I am now carefully considering all of the views and evidence. I hope to formally respond in the first half of next year.</p> more like this
