Put that Andy Burnham had announced that new casinos would be closed for six hours of every 24 and was there any plans to replicate that in the licensing trade, the PMS replied that there was a review under way in relation to 24 hour licensing and the Prime Minister had been speaking about it yesterday, so he did not think there was anything to add at the moment.

Asked why the Prime Minister was trying to turn the country into a nation of gamblers, the PMS said that what the Prime Minister had been doing since he took up office, was to make the decision not to go ahead with the super-casino. We had also seen some measures being announced today by Andy Burnham that tightened up the regulation of casinos. The concept of 24-hour casinos had come to an end and we had also seen an appeal from Andy Burnham to the gambling industry to make more of a contribution to help those groups who dealt with people who were affected by gambling addiction.
