The Consultation on changes to the code https://www.asa.org.uk/resource/consultation-children-lottery-ads.html is closing on Thursday 23 January 2020, and I have prepared the HLA’s official response.
From Neil McArthur – Chief Exec, Gambling Commission
As the situation with COVID-19 continues to impact daily life in Great Britain, like many of you, the Commission is following Public Health England guidance and we have told all staff to work from home until further notice.
We recognise these unprecedented circumstances will be having a significant impact on your business and many will be facing uncertain and unsettling times. The Commission has a well-practised and comprehensive Business Continuity Plan, which we have invoked with the intention of minimising the impact on our regulatory work and the advice and services we provide.
You may have heard the news that the Gambling Commission has today announced the outcome of the consultation into the use of credit cards in gambling, including lotteries.
As you know, the HLA opposed the ban because whilst it was recognised that this was a significant issue for gambling overall, the society lottery sector is low risk and we believe our supporters are to be disadvantaged disproportionately from the problem being addressed.
