NATIONAL LOTTERY BILL: Second Reading.
[Until 10.00 p.m.]
Mr Michael Howard
Mrs Theresa May
Mr Hugo Swire
Mr Don Foster
That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the National Lottery Bill because it creates the Big Lottery Fund, which will take the National Lottery further away from its original purpose of providing new resources to charities, sport, heritage and the arts; because it breaches the principle of additionality and allows the Secretary of State too much interference over the direction of Lottery funds and distributors; because it fails to restore funding to the original four good causes, which have lost £3 billion in Lottery funding since 1998; and because it fails to give the public sufficient say in where Lottery funding will go.
The Fifth Report from the Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Session 2003-04 HC196 on Reform of the National Lottery, and the Government's response thereto, Cm 6232, are relevant.
|Debate may continue until 10.00 p.m.|
