Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many licensed amusement arcades there are in(a) England, (b) Wales and (c) the North-West of England. [69374]

Mr. George Howarth

The Government do not collect figures on the numbers of amusement arcades.

However, BACTA (the trade association for the amusement machine industry) estimate that there are between 1,800 and 2,000 amusement arcades in Great Britain. They have no geographical breakdown.
