National Lottery: Big Lottery Fund

Volume 689: debated on Tuesday 20 February 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Of the grant moneys allocated each year by the Big Lottery Fund, how much was allocated in 2005 and 2006 to the following categories (a) education; (b) health; (c) environment; and (d) the voluntary sector. [HL1930]

The DCMS is unable to supply the information in the format requested as many of the projects funded by the Big Lottery Fund cover two or more areas in its statutory remit. However, information on how much was allocated to the voluntary sector will be available for 2006-07, when the Big Lottery Fund reports for the first time against its new undertaking to allocate 60 to 70 per cent of all its funding to the voluntary sector.
