National Lottery: Finance

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 26 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much income the National Lottery raised in each local authority area in England for each of the last three years for which figures are available. (187817)

Revenue raised by the National Lottery is measured nationally and not by local authority or any other geographical area.

Proceeds from National Lottery sales represent the vast majority of revenue. In addition, there are other operator-related proceeds (mainly unclaimed prizes) together with investment earnings on the overall balance held for distribution to the good causes.
