National Lottery Bill — New Clause 1 — Reports by distributing bodies — 19 Jan 2006 at 15:00
Hugo Swire MP, East Devon voted in the minority (Aye).
The no voters defeated an attempt to add a new clause to the bill. The new clause, had it been passed, would have required those who distributed the proceeds from the National Lottery to make a report each year about how the money had been spent. That report would have been made available to parliament.
From the debate, it appears that the reason that this clause was introduced was to prevent the goverment from using National Lottery money for projects that should have been funded from general taxation.
