Purpose of the session

The committee is examining the National Lottery licence competition process amidst criticism that the current operators, Camelot, have increased profits at a faster rate than funding for good causes. 

The session will also look at gambling-related harm and whether there is enough recognition that playing the lottery is a form of gambling. Described as the most common form of gambling in the UK, MPs are likely to examine whether the National Lottery is doing enough to represent the dangers of gambling.
