HC Deb 12 May 1931 vol 252 c985

asked the Prime Minister whether he has considered the memorial submitted by the Archbishops of York and Armagh, the Bishops of London, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the President of the National Council of Evangelical Free Churches, the Chief Rabbi, the headmasters of Harrow and Westminster, and others, appealing to the Government to provide facilities for the passage into law of the Racecourse Betting Act (1928) Amendment Bill; and what action does he propose to take?


Yes, Sir; I have given very careful consideration to the memorial referred to, but in view of the present state of Parliamentary business I can hold out no hope that an opportunity will be found for the discussion of this Bill.
