Methodist response to renewed consultation on casinos
Anthea Cox, Coordinating Secretary for Public Life &
Social Justice, says;
"We're delighted to hear this news. Our concerns about casinos have always primarily been about the harm they can do to people who develop gambling problems but we were never convinced about whether they were a realistic way of regenerating urban areas. We look forward to the Government's review in September and are pleased that the Government has listened to the concerns raised by churches and other groups."
