I have issued policy directions to all UK and England Lottery distributors, copies of which have been placed in the House Libraries. They direct each distributor on the persons to whom, the purposes for which and the conditions subject to which it distributes any money. They include no specific direction on the handling of funding bids from faith-based organisations.
