HC Deb 30 June 1927 vol 208 c558
28. Colonel DAY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his Department has any record of the amount of money paid to the Inland Revenue authorities for betting taxation on illegal betting; and, if so, the amount so received?

The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Commander Eyres Monsell)

The information is not available.

Colonel DAY

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman call the attention of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the fact that last week a man who was fined £100 for illegal betting, said he had disclosed his books to the Treasury and that the Treasury had written asking for a further 4½d. due on illegal betting.


Yes, Sir.
