Shadow culture secretary says decision on location of supercasino has been delayed by a month

Recommendations on where Britain’s first supercasino should be located have been delayed by one month according to the Tories.

Shadow culture secretary Hugo Swire said the excuse for the delay, given by the government’s casino advisory panel to culture secretary Tessa Jowell, was incredulous.

The panel told Jowell that it needed an extension to allow time for printing its report.
