Gift Aid: Cultural Heritage

Volume 460: debated on Wednesday 23 May 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how many cultural and heritage organisations received money through the Gift Aid scheme in each year since its introduction; (137982)

(2) what proportion of cultural and heritage organisations registered as charities in the United Kingdom made use of the Gift Aid scheme in each year since its introduction;

(3) what the (a) average, (b) maximum and (c) minimum turnover of cultural and heritage organisations registered as charities in the United Kingdom making use of the Gift Aid scheme was in each year since its introduction.

HM Revenue and Customs data do not breakdown Gift Aid claims by the type of charity and the information requested could not be obtained without disproportionate cost.
