The information is location specific. That is the list includes only grants that are specific to locations in the constituency and excludes grants that might have gone to addresses in the constituency, to headquarters offices for example, but are not otherwise related to it. The Department's Lottery Grants Database is searchable at:
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much income the National Lottery
raised in each local authority area in England for each of the last three years for which figures are available. 
Proceeds from National Lottery sales represent the vast majority of revenue. In addition, there are other operator-related proceeds (mainly unclaimed prizes) together with investment earnings on the overall balance held for distribution to the good causes.

Mr. Sutcliffe: The principal criteria against which the Sports councils assess activities is whether or not the activity meets the definition of sport contained in the Council of Europe's European Sports Charter 1993. This defines sport as:
Sport means all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels.
Mr. McNulty [holding answer 25 February 2008]: Assessment of the 101 service in the initial live areas found that the service has successfully improved public access to and satisfaction in community safety services. Through greater partnership working and better information from the public about what problems are happening where, the 101 service has helped local police and councils to target their resources more effectively and efficiently and improve the delivery of those services to the public. We welcome Sir Ronnie Flanagan's endorsement of these benefits in the final report of his review of policing, particularly in support of better neighbourhood management.
While it was decided not to continue centrally to fund local areas, a difficult but necessary decision in the context of important competing pressures and priorities, we remain keen to see the benefits and good practice from 101 taken up as widely as possible. It is for this reason that we will be continuing to provide funding for the national 101 infrastructure, as well as providing a tool kit to help local areas to improve local services and develop locally funded 101 services where possible.
I welcome the work currently being taken forward to this effect by the Greater London Assembly together with London councils, individual boroughs and the Metropolitan Police in their plans to pilot the 101 service locally.
Mr. Coaker [holding answer 25 February 2008]: Successive Alcohol Misuse Enforcement Campaigns (2004-06) and Tackling Underage Sales of Alcohol Campaigns (2006-07) have reduced the test purchase failure rate from approximately 50 per cent. to approximately 15 per cent.
The Home Office will continue to address the problem of underage drinking through co-ordinating the utilisation of existing legislation in relation to underage sales and confiscation of alcohol through national campaigns.
Mr. Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department further to the ministerial letter of 31 January 2006 responding to the recommendations within the Animal Procedures Committees (APC) 2005 report on the Statistics of Scientific Procedures on Living Animals; what response she has made to the APCs Recommendation 9 on enhancements to the types of information recorded within the statistics. 
Meg Hillier: We will provide a further response to recommendation 9 of the Animal Procedures Committees 2005 report on the Statistics of Scientific Procedures on Living Animals when the European Commission publishes revised statistical reporting requirements as part of the current review of Directive 86/609/EEC, which the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 transposes into UK law.
Mr. Coaker [holding answer 25 February 2008]: We have provided practitioners with a toolkit to tackle antisocial behaviour, which they operate according to local priorities and a practitioner website and advice line. In Crawley, a multidisciplinary antisocial behaviour team operates many initiatives, based on prevention and enforcement that engage, educate and promote awareness among young people, engage with residents and tackle antisocial behaviour in families.
