HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc59-60W

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the anomalies which exist in permitting or disallowing sweepstakes in different parts of the country and whether he proposes to take steps to have uniformity in the law, either by legalising all sweepstakes or prohibiting all?


My right hon. Friend has not yet had time to consider this difficult and highly controversial subject in all its bearings, but he agrees that it should receive attention.
