The majority Ayes approved the motion:
That the draft Gambling (Geographical Distribution of Casino Premises Licences) Order 2007, which was laid before this House on 1st March, be approved.This would have authorised the building of the UK's first 'supercasino' in Manchester, as well as sixteen other casinos of two new types created by the Gambling Act 2005. However, there was simultaneously a wrecking amendment passed in the Lords. Soon after, the new Prime Minister Gordon Brown ditched plans for a supercasino.
