HC Deb 23 June 1927 vol 207 c2051
51. Mr. J. HUDSON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the total receipts from the Betting Tax from its inception to the end of the last completed month for which statistics are available; and what is the number of licensed bookmakers?


The net receipts from the Betting Duty from the 1st November, 1926, to the 31st May, 1927, amounted to £1,379,800. As regards the number of bookmakers' certificates issued in the same period I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Southwark (Colonel Day) on the 21st June.
