Casino Order-Debate

Asked whether there had been any discussion about amending the motion to allow views about locations other than Manchester to be decided, the Leader said that it was the nature of delegated legislation that it should not be amendable. Therefore, a single Order would be before the House. There had been no formal discussion about whether it should be amendable. Inevitably, the recommendations from the casino advisory committee, which Tessa Jowell had said she was minded to accept, were part of a package. Mr Straw said that would be put to the House. Asked if there was any possibility of a free vote, the Leader said that it was a Government decision. The exact nature of the whipping would be determined by the Government Chief Whip in due course.
