The Government’s response to the CMS Select Committee’s report on society lotteries advised that it intended to explore all the recommendations further, with advice from the Gambling Commission. We are carefully considering the issues raised by the Select Committee and continue to take advice from the Gambling Commission as we consider policy options.

We expect that the Gambling Commission will publish their advice in due course, when Government has made an announcement on its conclusions.

The Gambling Commission are currently consulting on on increasing provisions around transparency for society lotteries. The consultation closes on 30 September 2017 and can be found here:
