A Labour government would use lottery cash to repair ageing public libraries and build new ones, The Independent reports (p4).

The proposals have been drawn up by the party's lottery review committee, which also wants to impose tighter limits on profits made by the lottery company, currently Camelot.

Mark Fisher, Labour's spokesman for the arts, said it was 'wrong to exclude libraries' from lottery largesse. The report is also expected to advocate redirecting lottery money which presently goes to the Millennium Commission, to children's play areas, multi-media education, arts education and home insulation.
