DCMS to consult on society lotteries

Maria Miller, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, has announced that a consultation will go ahead regarding whether there should be any changes to the minimum percentage of proceeds which society lotteries, such as the Health Lottery, must return to good causes.

The current minimum is 20% and the consultation will look at this and other ways to ensure that the burgeoning lottery market delivers the greatest possible benefit to good causes.
