§ Mr. Fatchett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received from chief constables of police forces about the operation of amusement arcades; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
Police forces have made some comments on this subject from time to time in recent years but have recognised that they have not been in a position to provide hard evidence of a problem requiring a change in the law. However, we have asked the Association of Chief Police Officers to provide information about their experience of amusement arcades as part of our review of the adequacy of the law.
