§ Mr. Clifton-Brown
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what estimate he has made of the effect of the receipt by charities of proceeds from the national lottery on the level of receipts by charities from other sources.
§ Mr. Brooke
The Government intend that proceeds from the national lottery should represent an additional source of money for charities and other beneficiaries: receipt of lottery moneys will not preclude charities from applying to other sources for funding. Indeed, it would be desirable for charities receiving money from the lottery to have a broad funding base.
