HC Deb 07 July 1966 vol 731 c82W
44. Mr. Weitzman

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the economic position, why he authorised the import of all types of coin or disc-operated amusement machines or parts, including gaming machines to the value of over £4 million in 1965.

Mr. Mason

Imports of these goods from most countries are made under open General Import Licence: no specific authorisation is needed.
