Super-casino statement due from Government
Culture Secretary Andy Burnham is expected to make a statement to Parliament tomorrow that will clarify the Government's intentions over building a super-casino in Manchester.
The Government originally chose Beswick in east Manchester from seven competing areas around the UK to house the £250m casino.
However, following outcry from anti-gambling protesters and a change of Prime Minister, Gordon Brown decided to review the measure.
Manchester City Council said earlier this year it would consider a legal challenge over the policy U-turn, unless a replacement scheme with the same regenerative impact was forthcoming from Government. The council says the casino and the wider development around it would have created 3,000 jobs.
