Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise whether, in view of the scandal and imputations surrounding the Bally poker machine company of the United States, he will bar further imports of its poker machines or their parts into Australia.

Mr Lionel Bowen (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - It is true that in Sydney at present a judicial investigation is being conducted into matters associated with registered clubs. One of the matters under consideration is suggested criminal activities associated with the importation of poker machines. The honourable member has raised an important matter which comes under the control of the federal authorities administering imports of goods. I undertake to have a look at the matter this day and advise the honourable member further.
