HC Deb 06 February 1962 vol 653 c26W
33. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that at various bingo clubs a new form of horse race betting is being introduced, based upon a totalisator number; and if he will introduce legislation to ensure that this betting is subjected to a totalisator tax similar to that in operation at greyhound racing stadiums.

Sir E. Boyle

If the competitions axe pool betting they are already liable at the basic rate of 30 per cent. If they are lawful lotteries and are not dutiable I cannot anticipate my right hon. Friend's Budget statement.
