HC Deb 21 February 1963 vol 672 cc83-4W
51. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give an estimate of the revenue to be derived in a full year from a 16⅔ per cent. or 2d. in the shilling comprehensive betting, gaming and gambling tax levied on pools, horse and greyhound racing, bets in shops, chemin-de-fer, fixed-odds betting, bingo and other such activities; and how such revenue would compare with the yield 1962–63 of £42½ million of betting duty, currently confined to football pools and greyhound racing only.

Mr. du Cann

No. There are no sufficiently firm figures of the total turnover on all forms of gambling on which to base a reliable estimate.
