The Codes apply to all media, including broadcast and online, and set standards for accuracy and honesty to which advertisers must adhere, including specific conditions on advertising to children, causing offence and social responsibility. The Codes also currently state that alcohol advertising must not be targeted at people under 18. The Codes are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure they remain effective.</p><p> </p><p>The Portman Group also provides a Code to the alcohol industry on Naming and Packaging and Promotion of Alcoholic Drinks, which includes that drinks should not have a particular appeal to under-18s.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Gambling Commission published its advice to government alongside the government’s consultation on society lotteries reform. 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

star this property answer text <p>Licensing of society lotteries is the responsibility of the Gambling Commission. Their most recent figures from March 2017 show there are 319 lotteries that hold two licences. One licence is required to sell by remote channels (such as online or over the telephone) and a separate licence is required to sell by non-remote channels (in person).</p><p> </p><p>There are three charities that hold multiple licences. These are Macmillan, Royal British Legion and Age UK.</p><p> </p><p>Some societies also come together under a common umbrella brand, managed by licensed External Lottery Managers. The societies that make up an umbrella brand are legally separate to each other and will each hold the relevant licence.</p> more like this

It protects gambling customers and the wider public from harm through its licence conditions and codes of practice and compliance and enforcement activity</p><p><br> The Government published its response to the consultation on proposed changes to gaming machines and social responsibility measures on 17 May. As well as the stake reduction on B2 machines, the consultation response included a package of measures that will strengthen protections around gaming machines, online gambling, gambling advertising and treatment for problem gamblers, for which work is already under way. The measures include:</p><ul><li>Protection measures on other category B gaming machines;</li><li>Increasing player protections around online gambling including stronger age verification rules and proposals to require operators to set limits on consumers’ spending until affordability checks have been conducted;</li><li>Doing more on research, education and treatment of problem gambling, including for Public Health England (PHE) to carry out a review of the evidence relating to the public health harms of gambling;</li><li>Enhancing protections around gambling advertising, including a major multi-million pound responsible gambling advertising campaign led by GambleAware, which will be launched later this year;</li><li>We will also be considering the issue of 16 year olds playing National Lottery products as part of the next licence competition for the National Lottery. We will aim to gather evidence on this issue in order to consider it fully in time for the next licence competition.</li></ul><p>The Government will deliver the reduction in stake through secondary legislation in due course. We are currently preparing draft regulations needed to make the change, alongside engaging with the gambling industry to ensure they are given sufficient time to implement and complete the technological changes for the reduction in maximum stake for Fixed-Odds Betting Terminals.</p><p> </p>
