HC Deb 30 July 1941 vol 373 cc1420-1W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give any information in connection with the charge heard at the Thames Police Court on Friday, against the Pavilion Club, Whitechapel Road, for using the club as a gaming club?

Mr. Peake

The premises in question were entered by the police on 24th July, 1941. Observations over a number of days had shown that the premises were used for unlawful gaming atchemin de fer and faro. Two principals and frequenters were arrested and a quantity of gaming material was seized. At Thames Police Court on 25th July the principals were each fined £100 and ordered to pay three guineas costs, and the frequenters were all bound over for three years not to frequent gaming houses.
