Last year society lotteries raised nearly £300m and as the Minister for Sports and Civil Society I am keenly aware of the vital role that they play in this country, supporting countless good causes including our charities, hospices and air ambulances. Society lotteries sit alongside the National Lottery, which last year raised £1.6bn.

DCMS ran a consultation on society lotteries reform from June to September 2018. This included options which considered changes to the annual sales limits. I hope to respond to the consultation before the summer recess.
