HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 cc159-60W
Mr. Albert Roberts

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give an indication as to the approximate loss of general betting duty that is now being incurred by the recent growth of illegal betting clubs where betting is carried on without payment of the duty.

Mr. Harold Lever

No estimate can be made. If my hon. Friend has evidence that the duty is being evaded, I should be grateful if he would let me see it.
