HC Deb 18 January 1993 vol 217 cc10-1W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to monitor the effects of excess gambling.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The Government do not routinely monitor the effects of excessive gambling. Research on specific issues is commissioned as necessary, most recently into the extent and nature of amusement machine playing by young people ("Amusement Machines: Dependency and Delinquency. Home Office Research Study 101, 1988").
