UK Towns Make Casino Case - Tuesday 14th of March 2006

"It argues, however, that transport links and regeneration plans mean both towns could host small casinos.

"…The report to Dumfries and Galloway licensing board members highlights Stranraer's waterfront redevelopment and its ferry links with Northern Ireland as key to its casino potential…"
