Camelot, the Lottery and commercial services

Fans of the obscure jurisprudence surrounding Article 106 TFEU will be interested to note that the National Lottery Commission is consulting on a proposal by Camelot, the owners of the lottery infrastructure (terminals etc) to offer commercial services through this structure. Camelot wants, in particular, to run payment services through the infrastructure and this has reportedly caused a number of potential competitors to object, saying that Camelot could cross-subsidise its commercial operations and thus abuse its dominant position (See the Sunday Telegraph for 25th April). It will be very interesting to watch a national regulator navigate these murky waters!

Details of the consultation, but no substantive discussion of the competition law issues, which closed on 25th April, are here:  http://www.natlotcomm.gov.uk/CLIENT/content_inner.ASP?ContentId=419
