§ 61. Mr. J. HARRIS
asked the Home Secretary whether, seeing that an intimation has been given to the organisers of the Stock Exchange sweepstake that in future steps will be taken to prevent such procedure, it is proposed to extend this warning to other institutions organising similar sweepstakes?
Each case of an apparent contravention of the law relating to lotteries must he judged by reference to the actual facts. Everyone who organises a public lottery, whether it is called a sweepstake or by any other name, renders himself liable to prosecution, but I cannot promise that everyone who does so will be given notice to this effect.
