1063. That is the result of your personal observation and that of your Superintendents?—Yes.

1064. Senator Parkinson.—As a simple way to improve the status of book-makers as against those who evade their obligations, either to the revenue or to backers, would not a standard rate, whether a flat rate or an agreed licence which would have to be paid by the book-maker, put men who are acting honestly on a sound footing.

General O’Duffy.—Thank you very much.

The Committee adjourned at 1 o’clock.
