Olympic Lottery Game

Volume 456: debated on Monday 29 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment she has made of the impact of the Olympic Lottery game on the sales of other Lottery games; and what (a) research and (b) evidence she has received. (111111)

No specific assessment has been made for or by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport of the actual impact of Olympic Lottery games on the sales of other National Lottery games. Sales performance and its analysis are matters for Camelot, the National Lottery operator and the independent regulator, the National Lottery Commission. Camelot is working to maximise sales of all Lottery products, including Olympic Lottery Games, and so minimise any impact that Olympic Lottery Games sales may have on income for the other good causes. The NLC and Camelot monitor sales closely and quarterly reports of returns to good causes, including the Olympic Lottery Distribution Fund, are published on the NLC’s website— The next such report is due to be published on 31 January.
