§ 39. Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Home Secretary how many clubs in the Metropolitan police area have been raided by the police during the past three months; what has been the nature of the offences alleged; how many convictions have been recorded and how many clubs struck off the register; and how these figures compare with the corresponding period of last year?
§ Following is the answer:
§ During the three months ended 30th November, 1929, two clubs have been entered under warrant on account of alleged offences against the Licensing Acts. In one of these case convictions resulted, but the club was not ordered to be struck off the register. The other ease is not yet concluded. In the corresponding period of last year 14 clubs were entered under warrant, 11 on account of alleged offences against the Licensing Acts, three on account of alleged offences under the Betting Act. Convictions resulted in all but one of these cases, and 11 of the clubs were ordered to be struck off the register.
