To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what proportion of Sport England's Lottery funding was allocated by its regional offices in the last year for which figures are available; and what proportion was allocated by the central office of Sport England. [108749]

Decisions on all Lottery applications during 2002–03, the latest year for which figures are available, were made by Sport England's Lottery Panel. However, in the case of the Active Communities Development Fund each region was given an allocation of funding against which it made recommendations on specific applications to the Lottery Panel. The total allocation to regional offices in respect of this Fund was £9.023 million out of a total budget of £277.432 million.
