Wandsworth Bans Casinos
As reported by the Wandsworth Guardian: "Las Vegas will not be coming to Wandsworth after licensing bosses agreed to ban casinos. "The Gambling Act 2005 has produced the possibility of allowing casinos to open, creating more jobs, trade, tourism and presumably more gambling. "But Wandsworth Council's licensing committee has banned casinos a decision rubber-stamped by the executive on Monday because it was against the borough's residential make-up. ".Licensing chairman, Councillor Stewart Finn said: 'We do not think, as a predominantly residential borough, there would a great deal of need for that sort of business."
