§ MR. ALDEN
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General whether his attention has been called to competitions which are at present taking place in several weekly papers, the prizes for which are based on the sweepstake principle; and, if so, whether, in view of- the law against lotteries, he proposes to take any action in the matter.
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir JOHN WALTON, Leeds, S.)
I cannot express any opinion upon the materials before me, but if my hon. friend will bring the subject before the Director of Public Prosecutions it will receive attention.
