GUIDELINES on the enforcement of proposed legislation on amusement centres were revealed yesterday in an effort to ease worries that it could be abused. Legislators expressed concern last week about certain proposals. One of the provisions in the Amusement Games Centre Bill is for machines to be forfeited if the operator does not have a licence or breaches conditions. The Government said yesterday that forfeiture would not be automatic, but would have to be sought through the courts. It would only be possible if there were more machines than allowed by the licence or they posed a safety hazard. Any licensee who breached conditions would receive a written warning and his centre would be monitored. A principal assistant secretary at the City and New Territories Administration, Duncan Pescod, said that in theory a breach of any licence condition might lead to the consideration of suspension, non-renewal or the revocation of a licence. The chairman of the Licensed Amusement Games Centres Trade Association, Peter Lam Kwok-tung, said he was worried that police could abuse their powers to seize machines.
