As per my response on 12 November, I met with the hon Member for Shipley and the hon Member for Tewkesbury on 10 October. This meeting included a discussion of the changes to stakes on B2 Gaming Machines. I have discussed this issue with a number of other colleagues. There was no discussion of the commercial takeover of Ladbrokes. The appropriate arrangements were in place to support an official meeting.
