HC Deb 13 March 1997 vol 292 c274W
Mr. Rendel

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about the future use of Tote profits. [18533]

Mr. Kirkhope

The Tote's role is to provide pool betting on horseracing and to raise money for racing. Maintaining its contribution to racing is central to Government policy; it is for the Tote to decide how to distribute the money.
