asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the curtailed postal facilities, recently announced, it is proposed to continue the facilities provided for football pools?

The sending by post by pool promoters of forms, coupons or circulars for use by any person entering football or racing pools is prohibited and any such communication observed in the post is stopped and returned to the sender. Football pool traffic by post is thus, in the main, confined to the sending by clients to pool promoters coupons (taken from newspapers) and of remittances. No special facilities are provided for its disposal.
