MPs open inquiry into the future of the National Lottery

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee has launched an inquiry into the future of the National Lottery in order to determine if changes are needed. 

Camelot has held the licence to operate the National Lottery since 1994. Its current licence was awarded in 2009 and extended by four years. It is due to expire on 31 January 2023. 

The licence is overseen by the Gambling Commission, and the competition for organisations wishing to run the National Lottery is expected to be launched in 2020. 

The DCMS Committee is asking people to submit evidence about their experiences and ideas to raise more money for good causes, and is questioning if there is need for greater flexibility.
