HC Deb 17 March 1891 vol 351 c1233

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been called to the measures taken against gambling at horse races in France, alleged to be occasioned by the great development of such gambling among all classes; and whether the Government will consider the propriety of taking measures to put down the evil in Great Britain?


I can only repeat the answer which I gave on the 5th inst.—that my attention has been called to this matter, and that the Government, while they will do their best to enforce the existing law, do not contemplate legislation on this subject.
