Sectors combine on additionality

Nathalie Thomas

Representatives from the voluntary and arts sectors have joined forces to support an amendment to the National Lottery Bill that would oblige all lottery distributors to draw up 'additionality' policies and put them in their annual reports.

The NCVO is working with the National Campaign for the Arts to lobby peers ahead of the Bill's report stage on 24 April. They want peers to vote in favour of an amendment from Lord Clement-Jones.

Lottery distributors have already promised to make their approach to additionality - the distinction between core government expenditure and lottery funding - publicly known. But both sectors want to see a firmer line drawn between the lottery and the state.

"What we would like to see is that commitment enshrined in legislation," said Lord Clement-Jones. "Governments and times change, and we think it is important to have that obligation on the face of the Bill, even if we can't agree a definition of additionality yet."
