§ MR. ANDERSON
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If his attention has been called to the circumstance that three suicides and one assassination were lately reported from Monte Carlo in one week; if Her Majesty's Government will make friendly representations to the Governments of France and Italy, with a view to getting 864 them to unite in insisting on the suppression of the public gaming tables in the Principality of Monaco; and, if Her Majesty's Government will also make friendly representations to the Government of France regarding the continuance of public gaming tables at Aix les Bains?
§ MR. ONSLOW
Before the noble Lord answers that Question, I should like to ask him whether Her Majesty's Government will, at the same time, make friendly representations to the same Governments, with a view to uniting with them for the prevention of gambling and bubble companies on the Stock Exchange?
§ MR. LABOUCHERE
I would like also to ask whether Her Majesty's Government has received friendly representations from the Principality of Monaco and the Government of France regarding the continued betting carried on at New market and other parts of England?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
I think I had better answer the Question put on the Paper in the name of the hon. Member for Glasgow (Mr. Anderson). The attention of Her Majesty's Government has not been called in any official manner to this circumstance; and they are not in a position to make any representation to the Governments of France and Italy on the subject.
