§ 72. Colonel DAY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether any proceedings have yet been instituted against persons for failure to take out betting licences?
§ Mr. McNEILL
Yes, Sir. Up to the 4th December there were 10 prosecutions for carrying on business as a bookmaker without having in force a proper certificate. Proceedings have also been instituted in 10 further such cases.
§ Colonel DAY
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any of these prosecutions have been against street bookmakers for occupying positions in the street?
