HC Deb 14 April 1932 vol 264 c988
50. Mr. MABANE

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the races for the King's Plates in Ireland were run in 1931 in the Irish Free State or in Northern Ireland?


All the races were run as usual, seven in the Free State and one in Northern Ireland.


Can the Financial Secretary say what he expects to be the result of these races in the current year, and whether the result has justified the imposition on the taxpayer of this country of a sum of £1,563 for prizes for these races run in the Irish Free State?


It would be impossible, as in the case of the Budget, to anticipate the result of these races.
