HC Deb 19 October 2001 vol 372 c1381W
Mr. Laurence Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans she has to prevent the use of jackpot machines in private members' clubs; and if she will make a statement. [8915]

Mr. Caborn

The report of the Gambling Review Body (CM 5206) included a recommendation that the law should be changed so that members' clubs which were not casinos or bingo clubs would no longer be allowed to install jackpot gaming machines. We are undertaking public consultations on all the proposals in the report, and will not reach decisions until we have considered all the points made.
