§ 65. Mr. John Hall
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state his estimate of the revenue likely to be received for the year 1958–59 from the Pool Betting Duty on greyhound racecourse totalisators; and if he will give an estimate of what percentage of the money actually spent on greyhound totalisator betting is represented by this tax.
§ Mr. Erroll
My right hon. Friend included £6.15 million for this duty in his Budget estimate. The duty is 10 per cent. of the money staked and of course applies to winnings in so far as they are reinvested during the course of the meeting.
