HC Deb 27 July 1979 vol 971 cc637-8W
Mr. Parry

asked the Minister of Transport if he will publish in theOfficial Report the number of hotels owned by British Transport Hotels Ltd. which have gaming licences.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No hotel owned by British Transport Hotels has a licence for casino gaming; 19 hotels have licences for gaming machines. In two of the hotels, a part of the building is leased to a private company for use as a casino, but in neither case is the casino operated, or the gaming licence held, by British Transport Hotels.
