Figures reveal cost of Glasgow's super-casino pitch

March 14 2007

According to parliamentary figures published this week, Glasgow City Council spent considerably less on its pitch for the super-casino than its rivals.

£50,000 was spent by the council on the pitch for the UK’s first super-casino licence - the loss of which was initially attributed to a lack of Executive support - compared with Blackpool’s investment of £200,000 and £150,000 from surprise winners Manchester.

In its feedback to a Lords committee on the bidding process the council complained that public support had also been a factor.

International casino owners including Sands LV and MGM Grand had expressed an interest in Glasgow’s bid.
