§ Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Postmaster-General whether he can state, by way of estimate or otherwise, the proportion of postal orders for each of the last five years issued for the purposes of football pools and associated business?
§ Major Tryon
The proportion is estimated to be about 30 per cent. for the year 1934–35 and a little over 40 per cent. for each of the succeeding four years.
