§ Mr. EUGENE WASON
asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been called to the increase in popular football competitions in weekly newspapers, which are in the nature of a lottery; whether he is aware that Scottish readers domiciled in Scotland are, by the desire of the Crown counsel, who consider these competitions illegal in Scotland, precluded from entering them, and that no coupon bearing a Scottish address can be accepted; and whether he will take steps to bring the English Law into conformity with that of Scotland?
§ Sir RUFUS ISAACS
My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has had this matter under his immediate consideration, and is proposing to introduce legislation dealing with it in this Session.
