§ Mr. Pawsey
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what revenue was received as a result of the Lotteries and Amusements Act 1976 for the 12 months commencing 1 July 1980; and what are the anticipated receipts for the 12 months commencing 1 July 1981.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
Information about societies' lotteries registered with local authorities is not collected centrally. Gaming Board receipts in respect of local authority and societies' lotteries registered with it were £178,382 for the 11 months ended 28 February 1981. No later information is available. There is insufficient information to make any estimate of the anticipated receipts for the 12 months beginning 1 July 1981.
