HC Deb 06 February 1962 vol 653 c24W
26. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what revenue he received during the last financial year from the 11 per cent. tax on totalisators at greyhound racing tracks; and by how much he estimates this 11 per cent. would be reduced if a tax were levied on both horse-racing and greyhound racing so as to to ensure the same revenue return to the Treasury.

Sir E. Boyle

Receipts of Pool Betting Duty from totalisators on dog racecourses in the last financial year, when only the basic 10 per cent. pool betting duty was chargeable, were £6,347,193. As regards the second part of the Question, I am not prepared to give estimates relating to hypothetical propositions of this nature.
