To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport for what reason the charity lottery sector was not included in the most recent triennial review of the Gambling Act 2005; and what plans she has to provide for a review of revenues and prizes in the charity lottery sector.

The recent Triennial Review was limited to Gaming Machine Stake and Prize Limits, and so the charity lottery sector was not within its remit. DCMS will be publishing a consultation on society lotteries, which will include consideration of the minimum amount of proceeds that a society lottery has to return to good causes, in the autumn. The limits on society lottery prizes will not be within the remit of the consultation.
