HC Deb 13 February 1976 vol 905 cc395-6W
Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Depart- ment what discussions he is having with the Betting Levy Board about the amount of financial assistance it is giving to horse-racing; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The Horseracing Betting Levy Board has reported to me that it has not reached agreement with the Bookmakers' Committee on the rate of contributions to be required from bookmakers during the levy period beginning 1st April next. The matter is now for determination by me under Section 1 of the Horserace Betting Levy Act 1969, and I hope to announce my decision soon.
