National Lottery: Grants

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much has been allocated to statutory bodies from each National Lottery distributor in each year since 1994. (155769)

The Department’s National Lottery Grants Database does not record the recipient status, whether statutory body, local authority or private sector, for every grant it records. The information requested could therefore only be provided by requesting a designation for every award from each distributor, which would incur disproportionate cost

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much was received by each of the National Lottery good causes in each year since 1995-96 in constant 2007-08 prices. (156710)

The figures requested, which are for income raised for the various good causes including investment income, are given in the following tables using 2006-07 constant prices, the latest available from the Office for National Statistics.
