(2) what is the total revenue received to date for the licence period commencing 1st October 1969 in respect of half-year gaming machine licences issued to club premises not requiring local authority approval;
(3) how many gaming machine licences issued to clubs during the licence period 1st October 1968 to 30th September, 1969 have not been renewed under the new licensing arrangements which became operative on 1st October, 1969.
§ Mr. Taverne
Net receipts up to end-November of Gaming Machine Licence Duty in respect of the current licence year are provisionally put at nearly £6 million; this compares with the sums of about £2.8 million and £2.9 million which are estimated to have been received in respect of the licence years 1967–68 and 1968–69 respectively.
No detailed analysis of the receipts in the current licence year is yet available.
