"That the amount of the pool betting duty on any bet made (whether before or after the passing of this Resolution) by reference to an event taking place on or after the ninth day of April, nineteen hundred and forty-nine, shall be half as much again as if this Resolution had not been passed, except in the case of a bet exempted under section fourteen of the Finance Act, 1948, from the increase under that section as being made by means of a totalisator set up on a dog racecourse.
And it is hereby declared that it is expedient in the public interest that this Resolution should have statutory effect under the provisions of the Provisional Collection of Taxes Act, 1913."
