Olympic Lottery

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics how much the Olympic Lottery scratch cards had raised at the latest date for which figures are available; and when she expects the operator to reach its target of £750 million. (251020)

I have been asked to reply.

The National Lottery Commission have advised that as of 28 November 2008, designated Olympic lottery games have raised half of the £750 million target, and are on track to reach £750 million by 2012.

The National Lottery Commission compiles a quarterly report detailing the level of funds that have been transferred to the National Lottery Distribution Fund and the Oylmpic Lottery Distribution Fund, the next of which will be published on 11 February 2009 and will be available at the following weblink:
