Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It is a pleasure, as always, to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for North West Norfolk (Sir Henry Bellingham) for calling what has been a stimulating and wide-ranging debate on an important issue, and I thank all Members who have taken part. Many of the issues that have been raised are complex, and are exactly the ones my Department has...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful for my right hon. Friend’s point, which, she is right, the whole debate has addressed. It is important, however, and other colleagues have made this point, that we have a strong national lottery. It has become a part of our national fabric, but that does not mean that we cannot also have strong society lotteries. The Secretary of State made that point recently.

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Tracey Crouch: We are constantly reviewing matters. The Gambling Commission constantly keeps the national lottery under review, and I am sure that colleagues are aware that discussions are already beginning about the next licence procedure. We have to have a healthy mix of lotteries. I recognise, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Witham pointed out, that not everyone is aware of the local good causes....

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I would be very happy to do that. The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. The other comment I wanted to make was on the call for evidence. Responses to the call for evidence have been considered alongside the Gambling Commission advice. The process has taken time. There have been two general elections since it started, but I assure colleagues that it is very much at the forefront of my current...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Backbench Business: Charitable Fundraising Websites — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It is a pleasure, as always, to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Cheadle (Mary Robinson) for bringing such a topical and important issue to our attention. We should celebrate the fact that we are a generous nation. As my hon. Friend said, Charities Aid Foundation research indicates that the British public donated about £10 billion to...

Tracey Crouch: My officials and I have regular conversations with the Home Office on matters relating to football and other sporting events, including counter-terrorism, security and policing matters.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Policing Costs (16 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Football clubs do make a significant contribution to policing costs for home matches, and the Premier League and the clubs themselves contributed more than £2.4 billion to the public finances. We have to recognise that there are parameters as to policing costs and where these can be recovered from. I know that recent High Court cases have determined that, based on existing legislation,...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Policing Costs (16 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: As I said, the Premier League and the clubs contribute more than £2.4 billion to the public finances. We are aware of the continued increase in the cost of policing football matches and other sporting events, and we have ongoing discussions about that with all those involved.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It has been well reported that there has been a decline in the receipts of the national lottery, and it is something that we are looking at. However, we still expect returns to good causes of the national lottery to be in the region of £1.6 billion, much of which will be distributed across the nation, including the constituency of the hon. Gentleman.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Mr Speaker, you will recall that on 31 October I published the 12-week consultation into gambling. That consultation will finish in January. On the day, we had an urgent question in which many of these issues were raised. None the less, the Government take the issue very seriously, and we look forward to getting back all the responses from the public and other interested organisations to...

Tracey Crouch: The Government established an independent review of full-time social action by young people, which is expected by the end of the year.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Mr Speaker, I hope you will forgive me, but it is actually a year ago today that the former Crewe Alexandra player Andy Woodward reported historical allegations. He was incredibly brave to do so. As a consequence of his courage, he has ensured that the Government and other parts of the sporting sector have taken the issue incredibly seriously. I am pleased to announce that I have secured...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It is a live consultation, and I encourage the right hon. Gentleman to submit his views to it.

Voter Registration (No. 2) Bill: Music: Contribution to the UK Economy (3 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I am delighted to respond to this debate, and I am grateful to the hon. Member for St Helens North (Conor McGinn) for securing it. The Minister for Digital, who has responsibility for the music industry, is disappointed that he cannot be here to respond in person. Given the hon. Gentleman’s comments on the music scene in his constituency, I am sure the Minister for Digital will be...

Voter Registration (No. 2) Bill: Music: Contribution to the UK Economy (3 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I would not wish to be out of order by responding, so I will ensure that my ministerial colleague reads the Hansard record of this debate and responds in writing to the hon. Gentleman.

Voter Registration (No. 2) Bill: Music: Contribution to the UK Economy (3 Nov 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I will ensure that the Minister with responsibility for the music industry will respond to the hon. Lady as well as to the Opposition spokesman. The Government’s response to the recent House of Lords inquiry into the Licensing Act 2003 will be published shortly. We will continue to work across government, and with industry and local authorities, to support small venues. The hon. Member...

Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility (31 Oct 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I am pleased to inform the House that this morning I published a consultation on proposals for changes to gaming machines and social responsibility measures across the gambling industry. The consultation will run for 12 weeks, during which the general public, industry and all other interested parties will be able to voice their views on the questions raised. I appreciate that some might not...

Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility (31 Oct 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I thank the hon. Gentleman for the kind words at the start of his speech. I am pleased to see his conversion on this issue. He was of course a Minister in the Government who passed the legislation that liberalised gambling and caused the harm that many people have suffered as a consequence of FOBTs. It is this Government who are taking action. I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s concerns...
