Would the hon. Gentleman bear in mind that the workings of this Act in certain respects give rise to very considerable concern and that it is essential to deal with it at an early date? Would he recommend to his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer that the levy on betting shops be raised from £100 to£1,000 per annum?
I share the hon. Gentleman's concern about the development of some of the commercial gaming that is taking place. We are well aware of concern in many parts about these developments, and I can assure him that I will keep very close watch.
