It was always understood when we bid that National Lottery funding for London 2012 would involve some loss of income to the non-Olympic good causes, though it is not possible to estimate this on a constituency-by-constituency basis. Overall though, non-Olympic Lottery distributors may lose an average of 5 per cent. of their income because of sales diversion to Olympic Lottery games over the period 2005-06 to 2012-13. In addition, we have already announced that £410 million will be taken from non-Olympic Lottery proceeds between 2009 and 2012. No decision has been made about how that amount will be shared between the various non-Olympic good causes.
The Government are currently considering how the additional Olympic costs of £900 million should be met. No conclusions have yet been reached on the further use of Lottery funding.
