HC Deb 09 March 1922 vol 151 c1530W

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the scandal produced by actions in the courts in connection with the recovery of money paid by cheque in liquidation of betting debts; whether he has especially noticed the observations of the judges; and whether he is prepared to introduce immediate legislation to deal with the present state of the law?


The answer to the first two questions is in the affirmative to the third in the negative.
