HC Deb 12 December 1934 vol 296 c392
67. Mr. McGOVERN

asked the Home Secretary the amount of money for the Irish Free State hospital sweepstakes which has been confiscated or returned after the opening of correspondence for each draw since they were initiated; and the number of prosecutions in connection with each draw?


No money has been confiscated, and it would not be in the public interest to give information as to the amount of the money returned, as requested in the first part of the question. As regards the second part of the question, I regret that the information is not available.
