Gambling Bill — Casino conditions — 24 Jan 2005 at 18:30

Before the Gambling Bill, casinos could only allow people in after they had become members, for which they had to prove their age and identity, and wait 24 hours. The Bill removed these restrictions. MPs voting No here defeated an amendment that would have meant casinos still had to check the age and ID of people coming in.
