§ 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.
