HC Deb 01 February 1967 vol 740 c99W
31. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the President of the Board of Trade how much was spent in each of the last five years on the import respectively of kidney machines and the machines known as one-armed bandits.

Mr. Darling

Neither kidney machines, nor machines known as one-armed bandits, are separately distinguished in the import statistics. The latter are included with coin or disc-operated amusement machines and parts thereof, the value of imports of which amounted to about £15 million over the past 5 years. In the same period applications received for remission of duty on imports of kidney machines and their parts, costing in total £82,000, are a rough indication of imports of these machines.
