HC Deb 13 February 1996 vol 271 cc544-5W
Miss Hoey

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what account was taken of the costs relating to(a) their mainframe computer, (b) each separate on-line terminal, (c) the annual service fee for the mainframe computer and (d) the annual service charge for each on-line terminal in determining whether to allocate the contract to run the national lottery to Camelot; and what were the figures involved. [14255]

Mr. Sproat

This is an operational matter for Camelot Group plc. The Director General of the National Lottery has licensed Camelot to run the national lottery and he regulates their operations. I have therefore asked the director general to write to the hon. Member, placing copies of his response in the Libraries of the House.
