Gambling with regeneration?

Reports in today's Observer that senior Cabinet ministers have joined forces to derail plans to open up to 250 super-casinos across Britain may have huge implications for my region.

Although, I have reservations about these proposals I am aware that one of the super casinos is planned for Swansea as part of phase two of the Wind Street/Salubrious Place development. It is obviously too early to tell as yet, especially as the responsible Cabinet Minister is vigorously defending her position, but there is a real danger that killing off the bill could undermine the regeneration of this part of Swansea City Centre. We will all be watching to see what amendments are accepted as the legislation goes through Parliament.
