star this property answer text <p>Pursuant to my previous answer, the £9,781,587 figure referred to was correctly spent by NCS providers in advance of delivery of the programme. This amount contributed to the upfront costs that are shared with providers to set up the programme for a specified number of places. Unfortunately, some of these places were not filled, and the advance payments for unfilled places cannot be recovered.</p><p> </p><p>Reducing the number of unfilled places is a priority for DCMS in order to deliver better value for money. We have reflected this in the NCS Trust’s performance framework and NCS Trust are improving their commissioning model to allow participation volumes to flex throughout the year in response to demand and reduce the number of unfilled places.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DCMS does permit NCS delivery partners to profit from their service delivery contracts. However, driving down costs is a priority for the Department and we are working with NCS Trust to ensure value for money for the taxpayer. While, direct comparisons are not straightforward due to the unique nature of NCS, a recent independent benchmarking exercise, commissioned by the Department, indicates that the programme compares favourably to the costs of other similar programmes in the sector, and internationally.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We considered advertising as part of our Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility. The Review looked at protections around gambling advertising and set out a package of initiatives to strengthen protections further. The gambling industry changed its code to require responsible gambling messaging appears on screen throughout the length of TV adverts, and it is working with GambleAware and the Gambling Commission to identify good practice on identifying vulnerable players, pilot responsible gambling messaging and interventions and understand the information players need to help them manage their own gambling.</p><p> </p><p>The package of measures also included a major responsible gambling advertising campaign, to run for two years with a budget of £5-7m each year, and will aim to raise awareness of risks and signpost to help where appropriate. The campaign will be led by GambleAware, with extensive input from experts on public health and gambling-related harm to ensure its effectiveness. Different messages will be tested with focus groups to build understanding around what type of core messaging can be used to achieve the desired behaviour and attitude change.</p>
