HC Deb 21 September 1948 vol 456 c695
46. Mr. Gammans

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the amount of tax collected from greyhound bookmakers during the four weeks starting on 9th August.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Glenvil Hall)

About £240,000.

Mr. Gammans

Is it not a fact that the Chancellor expected nearer £100,000 a week, and do these figures mean that the estimate may have to be revised?

Mr. Glenvil Hall

No, it is much too early yet to say whether the original estimate, which was £3 million in this year, will be reached.
