§ 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 158W 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.
