HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 c2W
Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can now say what contribution he has decided shall be made by bookmakers during the levy period which started on 1st April 1976.

Dr. Summerskill

Our determination of the scheme for contributions from bookmakers during the levy period which began on 1st April 1976 was announced on 16th March. The highest rate of levy was increased from 0.89 per cent. to 0.95 per cent. of turnover, with corresponding proportionate increases in all the other turnover categories except for categories One, Two and Three, in which liability for levy remained as in the period which ended on 31st March 1976
