HC Deb 24 February 1998 vol 307 c150W
Mr. Maude

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what is his Department's responsibility for approving the introduction of the National Lottery instant game, TV Dreams. [31196]

Mr. Chris Smith

Under section 6 of the National Lottery etc. Act 1993 the Director General of the National Lottery is responsible for licensing new National Lottery games. In doing so, he takes account of directions I have given him under section 11 of the Act. The BBC Governors are responsible for ensuring that all programmes broadcast on the BBC are in line with their Producers' Guidelines.
