The response to this challenge is embodied in arrangements informed not by international precedent but by privatisation policies pursued by successive Conservative governments between 1979 and 1994 when the Lottery was launched. Dr Douglas assesses the success of the Lotterys regulation against the objectives set out in the enabling legislation: the upholding of the Lotterys propriety, the protection of the players, and the maximising of the funds to be applied to the Good Causes. Lessons learned during the initial Licence period will inform the new seven year Licence from October 2001, the operator chosen for the new term, and in particular the role of the profit motive within the new arrangements.
