How the National Lottery has benefitted the Arts

Jon Jones made this Freedom of Information request to National Lottery Commission

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

National Lottery Commission did not have the information requested.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in regards to how the National Lottery has benefitted the Arts since its inception. Can you please tell me how funding has been distributed across England and Wales and what impact this has had?

Yours faithfully,

Jon Jones

National Lottery Commission

Dear Jon,

Thank you for your email.

Responsibility for the distribution of National Lottery funds is outside
the remit of the Commission. We carry out independent checks in order to
verify the payments made to the National Lottery Distribution Fund (NDLF),
but we have no responsibility for how those funds are subsequently
distributed.

Responsibility for the distribution of Lottery funds lies with separate
distribution bodies. If you are interested in finding out more about
Lottery distribution, the Lottery funding website is a good place to start
- http://www.lotteryfunding.org.uk/

I hope that this information is useful. If you would like to know more
about the specific remit of the Commission, then information is available
at www.natlotcomm.org.uk.

Regards

James Burgess
Performance and Communications Directorate Administrator
