S5W-00476: Richard Lochhead (Moray)

Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 3 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a breakdown of lottery funding awarded to each parliamentary constituency expressed also on a per capita basis.

Answered by: Angela Constance 16 June 2016

The National Lottery is reserved to the UK Government and information on how lottery funds are distributed in Scotland is not held by the Scottish Government. However the Big Lottery Fund in Scotland has provided a breakdown of the lottery funding it awarded to each parliamentary constituency in 2015-2016, this is set out in the following table.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has lead responsibility for the National Lottery and publishes information on the distribution of lottery funding on its website. This information can be searched for by local authority area, by UK parliamentary constituency and by funding distributor, including all ‘good cause’ funding distributors in Scotland: http://www.lottery.culture.gov.uk/Search.aspx

Lottery funding distributed by the Big Lottery Fund in Scotland between 1 April 2015 and 1 April 2016

Note: Due to the nature of Big Lottery Fund Scotland’s reporting system, distribution of funds is based on the main location of project delivery. Certain areas therefore have larger amounts invested partly because many organisations are based in these constituencies although their projects may be delivered nationally.
