§ 25. Sir BASIL PETO
asked the Home Secretary whether in view of the decision of the Government not to proceed with the tax on the totalisator takings of one-half per cent., it is the intention of the Government to amend the Racecourse Betting Act, which provides that bookmakers may be charged five times the ordinary fee of admission to racecourses?
§ Mr. CLYNES
No, Sir. I am inclined to think that the initiation of any legislation to amend the Racecourse Betting Control Act is among the matters which can best be left to private enterprise.
