§ 28. Mr. DENVILLE
asked the Home Secretary what steps, if any, he proposes to take to prevent racing by horses, dogs, etc., in this country, on Sundays, at which 1235 charges for admission are made and bookmakers are present?
§ Sir H. SAMUEL
The enforcement of the law in this matter does not rest with the Home Secretary. In case of any infringement of the Sunday Observance Act, 1780, Parliament has provided that the remedy shall be by way of civil action for penalties.
