HC Deb 24 March 1955 vol 538 cc199-200W
66. Mr. Boardman

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the growing public resentment against the anomalies created by the Betting and Lotteries Act; and if he will consider amendments.

Major Lloyd-George

As the hon. Member will be aware, there is a Private Member's Bill before the House which seeks to amend the law relating to small lotteries, but I can hold out no hope of legislation by the Government on the subject of gambling during the present Session.
