HC Deb 13 December 1934 vol 296 cc548-9
17. Mr. LOGAN

asked the Home Secretary whether he is in a position to allay the anxiety of dog-track proprietors by issuing regulations at once defining the type of totalisator which will be sanctioned?


Before prescribing regulations in pursuance of the powers conferred on me by the First Schedule to the Betting and Lotteries Act, 1934, I think that it would be desirable to afford an opportunity to manufacturers of totalisators and to the dog-racing interests of submitting observations on a draft code of regulations which is in an advanced stage of preparation. I hope-that the draft code will have been completed by the end of next week. When the draft code is ready, copies will be obtainable on application to the Home Office, and I propose, after considering any representations that may be received, to prescribe regulations early in the New Year.


Is the Home Secretary aware that the terms of the Betting and Lotteries Act with respect to the use of totalisators on dog-racing tracks have already resulted in the winding-up of many companies in the provinces?
