National Lottery Bill [Lords] — Additionality — 1 Jun 1998

As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael J. Martin):

With this, it will be convenient to discuss the following: New clause 3-- Additionality (No. 2) --

However, under the Government's definition, there is no reason on earth for the new opportunities fund not to fund text books and hospital beds in due course. We shall simply wait to see. We already know that it will fund the digitisation of material in public libraries and services that are already offered by general practitioners. It will simply be a short leap to text books and hospital beds, or whatever is politically expedient, to echo the words of my hon. Friend the Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Mr. Collins) about the supposed rigour of the Chancellor's public spending limits.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:--

The House divided: Ayes 121, Noes 276.
