Asked if the Casino policy would stay the same if the Government were to lose the vote in the Commons later today, the PMOS replied that it was best to wait and see how the vote went. Tessa Jowell and her Ministers were in touch with MPs, many MPs had different views on this subject, and therefore there were concerns that could be addressed, equally in the Lords. Again it would be better to wait and see what happened and take it from there.

Asked if the Government was suggesting that a second casino would most likely go to Blackpool, the PMOS replied that we were aware of both the strong feeling that there was in Blackpool, but also the commitment that there would not be a second super casino in this parliament. So it was about finding a way through that met both those concerns, but it was best for him not to give a running commentary on the discussions that were taking place.
