National Lottery: Wirral

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport pursuant to the answer of 6 May 2008, Official Report, column 852W, on the National Lottery: North West, what assessment he has made of the reasons for the increase in Lottery funding to projects in Wirral South constituency between 2006-07 and 2007-08. (207799)

No such assessment has been made. The individual lottery distributing bodies are responsible for making grant decisions independently of Government. Grants are made in response to applications and it is natural for the amounts awarded to particular areas to vary from year to year.
