HC Deb 01 April 1943 vol 388 cc326-7
23. Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary the total receipts for the 70 greyhound racing tracks for 1938 to 1941; the returns that are available for 1942; the receipts on the three tracks in Birmingham for 1942; the latest return for Rother-ham; and what the Rotherham returns showed in 1939?

Mr. H. Morrison

I assume that my hon. Friend is referring to receipts from totalisators on dog tracks. As I have explained in answer to previous Questions, these figures are not available in my Department, and I regret that the labour involved in collecting them would not be justified.

Mr. Thorne

Is my right hon. Friend aware that figures have already been printed, and I will send him the list so that he can keep it in front of him?

Mr. Morrison

I shall be very grateful if my hon. Friend can supply me with the figures with which his Question has asked me to supply him.
