§ 53. Mr. Teeling
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what have been the amounts received by the Treasury week by week from the greyhound racing totalisators and from football pools, respectively, since the 10 per cent. tax on these forms of betting came into force on 4th January.
§ Sir S. Cripps
The average weekly receipts from the totalisators and the pools are about £190,000 and £170,000, respectively.
Can the right hon. and learned Gentleman say whether the arrangement for obtaining money from the football pools was brought in on 4th January, or held up?
§ Captain Marsden
The right hon. and learned Gentleman gave us the average figure over a period. Can he say whether the weekly takings are receding?
