HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 cc329-30W
57. Mr. Body

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to permit the kind of car competitions, details of which he has received from the hon. Member for Holland with Boston, and the draws involving no real elements of skill, provided that such competitions take place for the sole benefit of a registered charity and are promoted to the knowledge of the charity and are properly audited.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

No. Under Section 45 of the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act 1963 small lotteries run for charitable purposes are already exempt from the general prohibition on lotteries contained in Section 41. I do not think it desirable to extend the present limits within which this concession operates.
