HC Deb 10 November 2000 vol 356 c445W
Mr. Moore

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when the review of the National Lottery grants application process is due to be published. [137767]

Kate Hoey

The Quality, Efficiency and Standards Team (QUEST) published the first phase of its review of Lottery application processes on 3 August. The report focuses on applications for grants of up to £100,000 and includes recommendations for improving application and assessment procedures in order to ease the administrative burden for small organisations applying for grants. Copies of the report are available in the Library of the House. QUEST will shortly begin the second phase of its work, which will investigate the costs inherent in the application process for larger grants, both to applicants and Lottery distributors.
