§ Ms Mowlam
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what proportion of the moneys allocated to them from the national lottery development fund he envisages should be the maximum spent on administrative costs by the five bodies selected by him to distribute the proceeds of the national lottery.
§ Mr. Brooke
The proportion of net lottery proceeds spent by distributing bodies on administration costs will depend on the amounts allocated to them from the national lottery distribution fund and the total number of applications they have to process. Directions issued to the bodies under section 26(3) of the National Lottery etc. Act 1993 will require them to secure value for money in the administration of lottery funds.
