I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been called to certain lotteries, one of which is in 200 parts of £5 each, which have been publicly advertised in connection with the Imperial Coronation Bazaar, which is being held in the Royal Botanical Gardens during Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week; and if so, [whether he intends to take any action to prevent these being proceeded with.
