§ Mr. Burgon
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has to alter the directions he has made to the National Lottery Commission under section 11 of the National Lottery etc. Act 1993, as amended. 
§ Mr. Chris Smith
I have removed the limit on the number of rollovers for any game forming part of the National Lottery from the National Lottery Commission' s current directions. The Commission has a statutory duty to protect the interests of players, and has been directed not to license any game that encourages excessive participation—this direction remains in force. The Commission will determine on a game-by-game basis whether there should be limits on the maximum number of rollovers—and, if so, what the limits should be—in the light of these duties.
I have placed copies of the revised directions in the Libraries of the House.
