HC Deb 20 December 1934 vol 296 cc1322-3
45. Captain A. RAMSAY

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he proposes to issue at an early date regulations under the First Schedule to the Betting Lotteries Act, 1934, prescribing the conditions with which a totalisator in Scotland will be required to comply?


Yes, Sir. Copies of draft regulations will very shortly be available to interested parties who apply for them to the Scottish Office, and any representations received will be considered before the regulations are finally made.


Is there any truth in the rumour that because of the conditions prevailing in Scotland only a 2 per cent. rake-off is to be allowed?
