To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what plans the Government has to increase the charity lottery annual sales limit from £50 million to £100 million.
22 November 2021
The government increased the annual sales limit for society lotteries from £10 million to £50 million in July 2020, as part of a package of reforms designed to enable both the National Lottery and society lotteries to thrive, and consequently to grow overall returns to good causes.
We have committed to reviewing these reforms, and that is now under way. We want to understand the impact of these changes, before we consider looking again at the case for a £100 million lottery licence and any additional conditions that may accompany that.
