GAMING ACT BREACH

LABOURER PINED £30 Found taking bets over the telephone on the afternoon of July 21, Royston Thompson Taylor (29), a labourer, appeared before Mr. J. Morling, S.M., in the Police Court this morning on a charge of using premises as a common gaming house. He pleaded guilty. Mr. Rogers said defendant had been taking bets for a short time in order to supplement his income. He was a seasonal freezing worker. "He has got a good fright and is not likely to offend again," counsel added. "Let's hope that he will not forget the scare he got," commented the magistrate in fining Taylor £30.
