In Powell v. Kempton Park Racecourse Co.  AC 143 the House of Lords had to decide whether s. 1 of the Betting Act 1853, which prohibited the keeping of a 'house, office, room or other place' for the purpose of betting, applied to Tattersall's Ring, which was an outdoor area at the racecourse. The court said it did not, as the specific places were all indoors. However, if the words 'other place' had been followed by a word like 'wheresoever' or 'whatsoever', the rule would not apply. The rule is really a presumption, which can be displaced by a contrary intention shown in the legislation. In the example given, adding the words 'wheresoever' or 'whatsoever' would show that the words 'other place' should not be limited to places which were indoors.
