No. As my right hon. Friend the Minister of State at the Home Office explained to my hon. Friend on 8 May at column30, the measures which we are taking to curtail the postal promotion here of lotteries based in the Federal Republic of Germany contrary to the Lotteries and Amusements Act 1976 already include bilateral exchanges with relevant authorities in the Federal Republic.
