Orders of the Day — Gambling Bill: Clause 7 — Casino (24 Jan 2005)

Mr Richard Page: With the reform of gambling, and the broad agreement in most quarters, the House can welcome many aspects of the Bill—the establishment of a gambling commission, further help for problem gamblers and new forms of control of new gambling, such as the internet and betting exchanges. However, the Minister seems to have adopted the line—I have seen it manifest itself twice, first in response...

Orders of the Day — Gambling Bill: Clause 7 — Casino (24 Jan 2005)

Mr Richard Page: I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman has any statistical background, but the larger the sample, the better the result that one will get. However, at the same time, the larger the sample, the longer it will take, so we come to a trade-off. I could take his argument and say, "Why not have just one?" He might say that we need one in a town and one in a resort, such as Blackpool, which the...

Gambling Bill (Programme) (No. 2) (24 Jan 2005)

Mr Richard Page: I would like to add to my hon. Friend's remarks. This Bill has been around, in various shapes and forms, for some four or five years. We had the Budd report, the White Paper, the pre-legislative scrutiny and then the Bill, which has been heavily amended throughout. The major concerns expressed by the Joint Committee regarding the planning advice were swept to one side with the claim that that...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill: New clause 20 (11 Jan 2005)

Mr Richard Page: You will recall, Mr. Gale, as will the Committee, that on 16 December we had the most extraordinary situation, the like of which I have not experienced in 28 years in the House.

At the time, my hon. Friend the...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill: New Clause 20 - Premises licences: specific cases: casino premises licence: overall limits (11 Jan 2005)

Mr Richard Page: The Minister has made some quite remarkable statements. I have to ask him about the authority by which he makes them.

Members: ''Third term.''] Does the Minister have the authority to state that there will be a debate on the Floor of the...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill: New Clause 9 - Operating licences: conditions: information (11 Jan 2005)

Mr Richard Page: I am grateful for the Minister's explanation. For gaming in this country to advance, we must ensure that we have the cleanest and most open operations in the world. Without that we will not attract the revenues that are out there in the world. I am sure that that revenue will come to this country once people know that we continue to operate a rigorous, open and honest gambling regime. I ask...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill: New Clause 9 - Operating licences: conditions: information (11 Jan 2005)

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill (16 Dec 2004)

Mr Richard Page: I would love to agree with the hon. Gentleman, because I recognise the mischief he is causing, but I do not feel that the issue is a runner, because the advisory panel would be remarkably foolish to start considering areas that have set their face against a new casino. However, there are opportunities for excitement there, too. How will the advisory panel be made up? I do not know how many...
