§ 28. Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the Treasury receipts from Pool Betting Duty collected on greyhound totalisators for the months of January, February and March, 1962, divided as between the normal 10 per cent. duty and the 10 per cent. surcharge imposed since 26th July, 1961, and similar figures for Bookmakers' Licence Duties on greyhound racecourses for the same month.
§ Sir E. Boyle
The figures show a slight fall in greyhound totalisator betting. It is not possible to say that they establish a trend, especially as the surcharge has been removed. It has been announced that the scope of the Pool Betting Duty is to be the subject of a review.
§ Following are the figures:
|Month||Pool Betting Duty on greyhound totalisators||Bookmarkers' Licence Duty|
