§ Mr. Michael
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his latest estimate of the finances that would accrue in a full year, after the deduction of all tax and other costs, from the national lottery to(a) sport in Wales, (b) performing arts in Wales, (c) other arts' activities in Wales and (d) other organisations or activities by type and category; and what percentage will be applied to revenue costs and capital costs, respectively, in each case.120W
§ Mr. David Hunt
It is not possible to predict how much the various categories of beneficiaries will receive from the national lottery. Distribution arrangements are the subject of discussions with the distributing bodies and with other Government Departments, and the relevant criteria will be published in due course. With the exception of charities, I expect the proceeds to be used for the most part for capital projects.
