"CIT chairman Tom Scott said: 'We remain of the opinion that a casino would be attractive to the Guernsey market but could not support the scale of associated investment required by the authorities.'

"He added: 'We believe we own a number of alternative sites that could suit a casino operation in Guernsey.'…"
