I beg to move amendment No. 81, in

clause 3, page 2, line 7, after '9', insert 'and section 11'.

This is a probing amendment. We seek clarification from the Minister. Paragraph (b) says in brackets, after ''betting'',

''within the meaning of section 9''.

Our amendment would insert ''and section 11''. It is uncertain whether section 11 has been left out because it relates to prize competitions. It would appear that prize competitions are also subject to the Bill and we believe that a specific reference should be made to avoid any doubt or confusion.
