National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

The minister thinks this is a matter of procedure.
Mr. ST. LAURENT: The principle behind this amendment is the desire that betting should be curtailed. The section which it is now proposed to amend is not one which creates a crime, but rather one which defines a common betting house. There is another provision which says it is an offence to keep a common betting house.

Topic:   CRIMINAL CODE
Subtopic:   AMENDMENTS WITH RESPECT TO BETTING, PREVIOUS OFFENCE CHARGED, ETC.
