Section 22: Directions to Big Lottery Fund

80.This section requires the Fund to comply with any directions given to it by the Secretary of State and by the devolved administrations in relation to their devolved expenditure. The powers set out in this section are broadly similar to the powers to give directions under the National Lottery etc Act 1993, save that subsection (3)(c) and (d) adds that directions may relate to the process used to decide what payments to make and to the terms and conditions upon which the Fund makes loans or grants or enters into other arrangements. The Fund must be consulted before any direction is given under this section.

81.Only the Secretary of State has power to issue directions under subsection (4) relating to operational matters such as financial management, staffing and accounts.
