Betting Accounts

Asked whether the announcement was linked to what the Prime Minister had talked about yesterday, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) told the assembled press that today’s announcement concerned dormant betting accounts, rather than bank accounts.

Asked if there was any estimate on how much money could be in these accounts, the PMS replied that Don Foster MP would be compiling a report to look into the issue and part of that would be to discover how much money was actually in these accounts.

On whether that would include unclaimed lottery prizes, the PMS said that it would include betting accounts and unclaimed winning tickets but advised people to speak to DCMS on the details. Asked if the scheme would include unclaimed premium bonds, the PMS advised people to speak to DCMS.
