Gaming Machines

Mr. Greg Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will commission research into the impact on small seaside town businesses of restricting the number of fruit machines to four per venue and halving the minimum stake for the £500 jackpot. [190658]

Mr. Sutcliffe [holding answer 3 March 2008]: The Gambling Act, which came into force on 1 September 2007, introduced a range of measures designed to assist the gaming machine industry. For the first time adult gaming centres can offer up to four category B3 machines with a £1 stake and a £500 prize.

The Government have asked the Gambling Commission to prioritise its research into the impact of high stake, high prize gaming machines.

Research into arcades based in small seaside towns would have little value since adult gaming centres are based in a wide range of locations across the country.

Members: Correspondence

Helen Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when he will reply to the letter of 21 January from the hon. Member for Warrington North on the Orford Park project. [190997]

Mr. Sutcliffe: A reply to the letter of 21 January from my hon. Friend will be sent as soon as possible.

Mineral Waters

Mr. Peter Ainsworth: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many litres of bottled water were purchased by his Department in
4 Mar 2008 : Column 2334W
each of the last three years; and if he will make a statement. [191245]

Mr. Sutcliffe: The Department purchased 19,558 litres of bottled water during April 2006 to March 2007.

National Lottery: Grants

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much funding the National Lottery Commission received from (a) the National Lottery Distribution Fund and (b) the Olympic Lottery Distribution Fund in each of the last five years. [191364]

Mr. Sutcliffe: The sums deducted from each fund in respect of the National Lottery Commission's expenses are given in the following table.

These figures are taken from the National Lottery Distribution Fund and Olympic Lottery Distribution Fund accounts. The significant increase in the last two financial years is attributable mainly to the Commission's work on the preparation and running of the competition for the third licence to run the national lottery.

Sport England: Grants

Mr. Don Foster: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what funding Sport England provided for each sport in (a) 2005-06, (b) 2006-07 and (c) 2007-08. [190138]

Mr. Sutcliffe: The funding provided for each sport by Sport England is as follows:
