Philip asks for a ban on allowing 16-year-olds to purchase scratch cards and lottery tickets

Philip Davies (Shipley)

When is the Secretary of State going to ban 16-year-olds from playing the national lottery and buying scratchcards on the national lottery, or is he more worried about who is winning the money than who is losing the money?


Secretary of State (Matt Hancock MP)

We put that issue into the review, and I am sure that my hon. Friend’s consideration will be taken into account, along with others.
