To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what assessment his Department has made of the effect of society lotteries on the hospice sector; and whether he plans to make it easier for society lotteries to raise funds for hospices and other good causes through deregulation.

I greatly appreciate the impact society lotteries have as a fundraising tool for charities and other non-commercial organisations, raising hundreds of millions of pounds every year for many good causes including the hospice sector.

We are looking at the role of society lotteries, with advice from the Gambling Commission, and will make an announcement in due course.
