HC Deb 30 November 1931 vol 260 c773W

asked the Home Secretary if he will consider the advisability of consolidating and amending the Lottery Act, 1824, the Vagrancy Act, 1824, the Games and Wagers Act, 1845, the Betting Houses Act, 1853, the Gamings Act, 1854, the Vagrancy Amending Act, 1898, and the Gamings Act, 1925, in one statute so as to bring the law on the subject up to date?


Assuming that the Acts referred to are those dealing with betting and gaming, I do not propose at present to introduce legislation upon the lines indicated by my hon. Friend.
