The Department for Culture, Media and Sport have recently carried out a public consultation on the Budd report. During this consultation, a number of representations were made about the recommendation in the report that jackpot machines should be removed from private clubs. The Government will put forward their proposals on the law relating to gaming once we have fully considered the points made in the consultation. The Scotland Office, and the Scottish Executive, are keeping in close touch with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in this area.
