§ 43. Sir WALTER de FRECE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether bookmakers who wish to pay the Betting Duty by making returns to the Commissioners are able to give the necessary surety in cash; and, if not, why this is not possible?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
The usual course is for a bookmaker who wishes to pay duty on returns, to enter into a bond signed by himself as principal and also by a surety. If the book- 1368 maker does not obtain a surety, he may enter into a personal bond with the Commissioners and deposit cash in place of a surety.
§ Sir W. de FRECE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Commissioners have refused to accept cash in several cases?
