§ Mr. Quibell
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that gaming machines have been prohibited in parts of Lincolnshire; and whether he will take steps to see that the same process is carried out in other parts of the country so that the law in this respect may be universally applied?
§ Mr. Lloyd
My right hon. Friend is informed by the Chief Constable of Lincolnshire that proceedings are taken in his area when evidence is obtained that gaming machines are being used for the purpose of unlawful gaming. There is no reason to believe that similar action is not taken in appropriate cases by the police in other parts of the country.
