HC Deb 29 November 1926 vol 200 cc850-1W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the lowest denomination of Revenue tickets issued by the Customs and Excise is for a shilling bet, bets under a shilling are treated as free of the betting duty?


No, Sir. Bets of any amount made with a bookmaker are liable to the betting duty.

Colonel DAY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total income derived by the Treasury from the new betting taxation to the last convenient date?


No figure relating to the yield of the betting taxation will be available for publication until the middle of next month, when I shall be able to give the revenue for November.
