HC Deb 02 June 1981 vol 5 c311W
Sir Frederic Bennett

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates would be the net extra yield of doubling the tax on one-armed bandits in clubs and public houses in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Peter Rees

[pursuant to his reply, 21 May 1981, c. 128]: It is estimated that doubling the rates of licence duty on gaming machines, including those in clubs and public houses, would yield about £15 million in a full year.
