Red tape linked to running some lotteries for good causes is set to be cut following a change in the law.
From Wednesday (6 April) a number of changes to the Gambling Act will reduce the requirements for running some low level lotteries but the law will still ensure that they are run fairly to support charities and other good causes.
The changes are the result of the previous Government’s Red Tape Challenge. Following a recommendation from the Gambling Commission the Department for Culture, Media and Sport carried out a consultation on proposed changes to some of the existing rules governing incidental non-commercial, private society, work and residents’ lotteries.
