Ceisteanna—Questions. Written Answers. - Licensing of Bookmaker.

Gay Mitchell

Question:

135 Mr. G. Mitchell asked the Minister for Justice if she will make a statement concerning the subject matter of a letter (details supplied) relating to the licensing of a bookmaker. [3216/94]

It would not be appropriate for me to comment publicly on an individual application made under section 5 of the Betting Act, 1931 for a certificate of fitness to hold a bookmaker's licence. I am, however, aware of the circumstances which have given rise to the Deputy's question and I will have regard to them when making my decision on the application.
