HC Deb 08 November 1999 vol 337 c462W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if Lottery moneys which are used as a constituent part of projects attracting Objective 1 European funding will be termed public or private expenditure; and if he will make a statement. [97534]

Mr. Paul Murphy

The National Assembly would not have to provide public expenditure cover for Lottery match funding. Lottery moneys are not Exchequer funding. Lottery funding counts as public expenditure within the Total Managed Expenditure of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
