§ Mr. WINDSOR
asked the Home Secretary whether instructions have been issued to the police authorities that in the case of draws, sweepstakes, and lotteries where it is shown that their promotion is bona fide and in no degree for private profit or advantage no proceedings shall be taken?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
No such instructions have been issued. The Lottery Acts do not discriminate between lotteries promoted wholly or partly for the benefit of charities and other lotteries, and it is the duty of the police to enforce the law.
