To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport how many licensed betting offices paid the Horserace Betting Levy (a) at the 10 per cent. rate, (b) between 4.5 per cent. and 10 per cent. and (c) at a rate of 4.5 per cent. or lower in each of the last three years.
The Department does not hold the information requested.
The Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) is responsible for collecting the levy from betting shops, and I have therefore asked the chief executive of the HBLB to write to the hon. Member for Chippenham directly.
Copies of the response will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
