HC Deb 17 May 1962 vol 659 c140W
49. Mr. Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the dissatisfaction expressed by a number of small bookmakers about the granting of an excessive number of licences for betting shops to large bookmaking firms, he will make inquiries about the relative number of licences granted to each group, large and small, as part of a general review of the operation of the Gaming Act, 1960.

Mr. Renton

My right hon. Friend is not persuaded that a review of the operation of the Betting and Gaming Act, 1960 is required at present.
