DERBY "SWEEPS."—IMPORTANT STATEMENTS. Sir Robert Harry Inglis said, about ten weeks ago he called the attention of the right hon. baronet to certain advertisements which had been inserted in the papers, for the purpose of rais- ing sweeps for the Derby. He wished now to ask the right hon. baronet, .believing hardly any proceedings cause more de- moralisation and mischief, first—^whether such advertisements or practices were illegal, according to his view of the law, and the law officers of the Crown; secondly, if they were illegal, whether the Government was prepared to take any measures to prevent or punish such practices in the future ? Sir G. Grey said that in consequence of the attention that had lately been given to the subject, he had made inquiry in the state of the law, and he believed that by a decision of the Court of Queen's Bench, in 1845, it had been held that a lottery for the Derby was an illegal lottery, and it appeared clear that such ad- vertisements as had been alluded to by the hon. baronet were pro- hibited, under the statutes of the 42nd of George II., and the 6th and 7th of Win. IV.j chap. 56. In consequence of these circum- stances, some communications had taken place between himself and the Board of Stamps and Taxes, in which it had been stated by the Board that it was their intention to submit certain advertise- ments to the consideration of the Home-office. Those advertise- ments had not yet been received by him when they were, he could assure the hon, baronet he should give his best attention to them..
