§ 12. Brigadier - General CLIFTON BROWN
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the loss of funds to local hospitals at Hungerford, owing to the action of the police authorities in forbidding a tombola, he will introduce a system of licences whereby a local bench of magistrates can authorise tombolas when satisfied that they are for purely charitable purposes?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I do not contemplate legislation for the purpose of legalising public lotteries.
