HC Deb 08 December 1926 vol 200 c2113
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?


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?


I think there was one.
