HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c1739

Lords Amendment: In page 2, line 5, at end insert: and, without prejudice to section three of the Betting and Lotteries Act, 1934, shall also not apply in relation to pool betting transactions.

7.40 p.m.

The Joint Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Dennis Vosper)

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This is a technical drafting Amendment to eliminate a duplication which was inserted in error into the Bill during the Committee stage resulting in the restrictions on pool betting and the use of a place in connection therewith appearing in this Act and in the Act of 1934. This will eliminate one provision.

Question put and agreed to.
