Information about National Lottery ticket sales is not collected by constituency, but the National Lottery Commission is able to provide information about sales broken down by postcode area. In response to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Morley and Rothwell (Mr. Challen) on 22 October 2002,Official Report, columns 182–83, my right hon. Friend the Minister for Sport placed in the Library a table provided by Camelot plc listing sales by postcode area since the Lottery's launch. I refer the hon. Member to that table.
