§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total revenue gained from the proceeds of betting tax on football, horse racing and greyhound racing in the last year for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
It is not possible to allocate receipts of betting duties among the various activities. Receipts from all betting duties in 1983 amounted to £468 million (provisional); of these £199 million came from pool betting.
