HC Deb 09 November 1999 vol 337 cc490-1W
Mr. Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what estimates he has made of expenditure on Lottery ticket sales as(a) a percentage of household income and (b) a share of total ticket sales for each income decile. [97054]

Kate Hoey

My Department has made no such estimates. However, there is an analysis of National Lottery ticket sales by income category in the National Lottery Commission's Social Research Programme Report, Number 1, published in May 1999. I have arranged for copies of this Report to be placed in the Libraries of the House.
