§ 51. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the proposed duty on betting is intended to apply to cash bets in clubs between members; and whether it will apply only to bets on horse races or to other bets on other forms of sport, competition, &c.
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
Bets made between private persons whether in a club or elsewhere will be outside the scope of the duty. The duty will apply to bets with a bookmaker on any event whether horse races or otherwise.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
May I ask what happens in the case of a bookmaker who makes a bet in a club Is that to be taxed or exempt?
