HC Deb 25 November 1925 vol 188 c1398W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Home Secretary what orders have been issued with respect to suppressing the practice of giving programme prizes in connection with whist drives, dances and carnivals; and what are the reasons actuating official representations in this direction?


No special directions have been issued by my right hon. Friend. It is the duty of the police to intervene to prevent breaches of the law.
