The Casino Advisory Panel was set up to operate entirely independently of the Government. It was a matter for the panel how it interpreted the criteria.

The factors which the panel took into account when assessing each of the proposals before it against its remitted criteria are set out clearly in chapter 6 of the panel's report.
