§ Mr. Cormack
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he proposes to introduce a national lottery.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The arguments for and against a national lottery were considered by the Interdepartmental Working Party on Lotteries, whose report was published in December. We shall be assessing reaction to the working party's recommendations on this and other aspects of the law on lotteries, pools and prize competitions.
