Lottery regulator's chief takes on additional role

Mark Harris, the man responsible for regulating the National Lottery, has become a trustee of the Responsibility in Gambling Trust.

As chief executive of the National Lottery Commission, Harris is tasked with protecting the integrity of the lottery and its players, and ensuring best returns for good causes.

As trustee of the RIGT, Harris joins an organisation with a remit to research, treat and educate to prevent problem gambling. The trust is funded mostly by the gambling industry. Over the past three years it has spent £5.5m on preventing and treating gambling addiction.

Harris said that becoming a trustee of the trust was a chance to share his experience of the lottery as an example of good practice and socially responsible gambling.
