We're pleased to release our latest findings on the public and MPs attitudes towards charity lottery regulation from Autumn 2018.
Key findings of the report are:
- Both the public and MPs are against laws and regulation which stop competition between charity lotteries and the national lottery (66%), or that prevent charity lotteries raising as much as the national lottery (64% for MPs and 62% for the public)
- The public are against capping the number of tickets sold for the National Lottery (59% against capping and 21% in favour) and charity lotteries (62% against and 16% in favour)
- Public opinion on capping the size of the prizes is more evenly balanced with 35% in favour of a cap on National Lottery prizes and 25% in favour of a cap on charity lottery prizes
- MPs are less in favour of capping prize-size with 22% for charity lottery and 25% for the National Lottery
- There has been little change in public attitudes since we last ran the research in 2015
- Labour MPs are less likely to be against restricting competition compared to Conservative MPs; 75% of Conservative MPs are against laws and regulation which stop competition while 56% of Labour are against it
