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>

star this property answer text <p>It is open to all sportspeople in the UK to represent Great Britain and Northern Ireland where appropriate. In addition, both the UK Government and UK Sport recognise the birthright of all the people of Northern Ireland to identify themselves and be accepted as Irish or British, or both, as they may so choose. This right extends to athletes from Northern Ireland having the choice to represent Great Britain and Northern Ireland or Ireland at a national level in their given sport should they wish to do so. At times this will be subject to the overarching rules applied by the individual Governing Bodies of the sport.</p><p> </p><p>Sporting matters are devolved, and eligibility and selection for international competition remain matters for the relevant sports authorities. However, sporting organisations have an important role to play in contributing to inclusion in Northern Ireland and across the United Kingdom. Through the sports cabinet, I will continue to discuss sporting matters across the UK.</p>
