HC Deb 08 November 1999 vol 337 c395W
Mr. Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will make a statement on the practicality of compiling an analysis of National Lottery ticket sales on a constituency basis based on sales in postal districts. [97098]

Kate Hoey

My Department holds information only on gross ticket sales. Neither the National Lottery Commission nor my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State require an analysis of sales by constituency to fulfil their statutory objectives under the National Lottery etc. Act 1993 (as amended). There is, therefore, no requirement for the National Lottery operator, Camelot Group plc, to provide the information in this format, and they have not done so.
