HC Deb 02 March 1956 vol 549 cc157-8W
Captain Kerby

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of his recent announcements, he will now impose a tax on the distributed funds of football pools, to an extent at least as great as that now levied on the distributed profits of industry.

Mr. H. Macmillan

I have taken note of my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion. I would remind him that the Pool Betting Duty is already levied at 30 per cent. of the total stakes.
