HC Deb 17 June 1889 vol 337 c14
MR. WOOTTON ISAACSON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the Government will consider the expediency of stopping all lottery circulars coming through the post from Hamburg, and other parts of Germany, with the view of checking this form of gambling?


In answer to the question of my hon. Friend, I have to say that, as the law stands at present, there is no power to stop lottery circulars from entering this country by post.
