Is the Health Lottery 'diluting charity'?

The charity sector is calling on MP's to investigate the operation of the Health Lottery, run by media owner Richard Desmond.

Sir Stephen Bubb, of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO), says there is "less money for charities overall" because of The Health Lottery.

But Jeremy Muller, one of the three directors of the Community Interest Companies which manage the Health Lottery defends the lottery, saying it has already given £8m to charities across the country.
