HC Deb 08 July 2003 vol 408 c721W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to introduce a Gaming Bill. [124453]

Mr. Caborn

I have been asked to reply.

We will bring forward legislation as soon as parliamentary time permits. We also intend that Parliament should have an opportunity to give our proposals pre-legislative scrutiny, and plan to publish draft clauses to that end.
