§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
Since the reply by my right hon. and learned Friend to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Rugby and Kenilworth (Mr. Pawsey) on 19 March at column455, we have received a further 25 letters from hon. Members about the controls on the advertising of licensed bingo clubs.
I understand that in April the Bingo Association of Great Britain resumed discussions with the Gaming Board for Great Britain on the scope, if any, for some partial relaxation of the controls on bingo club advertising, and that the board hopes soon to be in a position to report, for our consideration, its advice in light of these discussions.
