Select Committee on Justice and Equality
Gaming and Lotteries (Amendment) Bill 2019: Committee Stage
I draw the Deputy's attention to section 28(3) which reads:
(3) In considering an application under this section for a lottery licence, a judge of the District Court shall have regard to the following: (a) the character of the applicant;
(b) the number of periodical lotteries already in operation in the locality;
(c) the purpose of the lottery.
There are various conditions in the Bill which the court will take into account before granting a licence.
