star this property answer text <p>We are committed to ensuring both society lotteries and the National Lottery are able to thrive and am currently considering responses to the recent consultation on reforms to society lotteries. The consultation seeks to achieve a balance between enabling growth in the society lottery sector, while also protecting the unique position of the UK-wide National Lottery, which has raised over £39 billion for good causes since it started in 1994.</p><p> </p><p>In terms of supporting the National Lottery, work has begun with the Gambling Commission on preparations for the next licence competition, and this year is an important one for the National Lottery in marking its 25th Anniversary. I am looking forward to supporting those celebrations.</p> more like this

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

Our aim in reforming society lotteries is to allow for further growth in the sector, whilst ensuring that growth does not have a detrimental impact on the National Lottery.</p><p> </p><p>The consultation options have been informed by expert advice from the Gambling Commission, which was requested following a CMS Select Committee enquiry on society lotteries in March 2015. This advice has been published alongside the consultation, which I attach, and can be found at:</p><p>http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/PDF/consultations/Society-lottery-advice-provided-to-DCMS-002.pdf</p><p> </p><p>In its comprehensive advice, the Gambling Commission advised that small changes to existing limits are likely to have minimal impact on the National Lottery, and that while society lotteries offer a differentiated product with smaller prizes, substitution between the two is likely to remain minimal. In conclusion, it said:</p><p> </p><p>“In the context of society lotteries and the National Lottery in GB, the [academic] studies would suggest that whilst society lotteries offer a differentiated product with smaller jackpot prizes, substitution between the society lotteries and the National Lottery is likely to remain minimal. Lifting restrictions on the society lottery sector may enable society lotteries to increase their sales but under existing conditions and therefore under small changes to existing limits the impact on the National Lottery is likely to be small.”</p><p> </p>
