Memorandum by the Home Office
1999 (S.I. 1999/436)
By a letter from its Clerk dated 17 March 1999 the
Committee has requested a memorandum on the following point:
The Order increases the fees payable to the Gaming
Board in respect of four matters (registration, continued registration,
promotion based on turnover and certification as a lottery manager)
and the rates of increase vary from 3% to 7%. Explain the reasons
for these different rates of increase.
The different percentage rates of increase are the
outcome of the method of calculation used. The new fees were calculated
by applying an increase of 5% to each of the existing fees then
rounding each up or down to the nearest multiple of £5.
