The net receipts from the Betting Duty from the 1st November, 1926, to the 31st May, 1927, amounted to £1,379,800. As regards the number of bookmakers' certificates issued in the same period I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Southwark (Colonel Day) on the 21st June.
