UK Conservatives Against Raising Super-Casino Numbers
As reported by the Financial Times: "The gaming industry's hopes for more Las Vegas-style super-casinos will be dashed tomorrow when the Conservatives rule out their support for plans to increase the number of properties. "Only one super-casino will be built following changes to gambling laws although the government has indicated it would be prepared to increase the number if there were sufficient cross-party support.
"However, the Tories will outline their opposition to an increase at a special seminar that will be attended by groups such as the Salvation Army and GamCare, which helps problem gamblers.
"In a letter sent to Tory MPs this week, Hugo Swire, the shadow culture secretary, called on his colleagues to stress their opposition to more super-casinos."
