"Jersey Craps On Itself Again"
They gave our lottery to an English company
From Sue Le Brocq, lottery main agent.
IN REPLY to the excellent letter from Michael Green (JEP, 6 June) under the headline ‘Our lottery has been sold behind our backs’ I would like to point out that the lottery was not sold, but given away at no expense to an English company.
I agree with Mr Green’s point that the Assistant Economic Development Minister, Len Norman, has been negotiating a deal behind closed doors without the main agents and public being made aware, and allowing another English company to come to the island and take over another local business.
Jersey Lottery sales were up by 6.9% last year and Jersey charities received £425,000 from the sales of the tickets.
We as main agents have worked very hard to build a business which involves many local outlets selling lottery tickets, in order to support local Jersey charities. Without compensation or notice of termination that business is being taken away and given to an English company.
