66. Sir C. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement about his policy regarding the future of private bridge clubs at present governed by the Gaming Act.

My right hon. Friend is aware of, and sympathises with, the difficulties of some bridge clubs under the Gaming Act 1968. He is considering, in the light of representations from the English Bridge Union, how these might be overcome.
