§ MR. BYRON REED (Bradford, E)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention has been called to a lottery announced to be held on behalf of the William Street Reform Club, Darwen, on which occasion prizes consisting of a piano, a gold watch, and other articles are to be drawn; and, what stops he proposes to take in reference to the matter?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
I have not received any information with regard to this lottery. The local police can prosecute if there is a sufficient case; and I do not propose to interfere.
