Holiday Accommodation

Lembit Öpik: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether his Department has contributed to the impact assessment on the abolition of the furnished holidays letting rules being carried out by HM Treasury. [294594]

Margaret Hodge: My hon. Friend the Member for Stevenage (Barbara Follett) raised this issue with Treasury Ministers and wrote to them setting out the industries concerns about these changes in detail.

My officials and I remain in discussion with Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) about the impact of these rule changes on the tourism industry. HMRC will be publishing their assessment of this together with draft legislation at the same time that the pre-Budget report is issued.

National Lottery

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what recent estimate he has made of the administration costs of each of the National Lottery distributors. [294375]

Mr. Simon: My Department encourages the national lottery distributors to keep their administration costs as low as possible and to share best practice, and their latest accounts indicate that most have reduced their operating costs in cash terms. However, as administration costs vary considerably depending on the type and size of grant given and the amounts that applicants receive, the costs listed by the distributors in their annual reports are not readily comparable between distributors.

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the income of the National Lottery good causes has been in (a) actual and (b) real terms in each year since the National Lottery began. [294646]

Mr. Simon: The information requested is provided in the following tables:
