MR. AV. T. HAZLETT'S OPINION "My opinion is that the only solution is to license the bookmakers on the courses, and people can then bet with the bookmakers or on the totalisator as they please," said Mr. W. T. Hazlett, president of the Southland Racing Club at the annual meeting. "Personally, I do not think the Racing Conference will favour the licensing of bookmakers, and the Government is never likely to approve of anything but totalisator betting." Mr. Hazlett added that it was impossible to stop bookmaking in New Zealand or in any other part of the world. If all the bootmakers were put in gaol there would always be more to take their places.

He went on to say that in his opinion all the talk about undesirables frequenting jockeys' rooms and organising ramps were racecourse rumours, and that many of the reports dealing with leakages of information were grossly exaggerated.
