Written answers (Question to Public)

I am committed to ensuring that the National Lottery continues to operate in a socially responsible way under its new licensee.  I consider it very important that the Lottery continues to build on its strong record in this area dating back to its foundation in 1986 and I welcome the National Lottery's ongoing commitment to best practice in this regard.
