Bingo Clubs

EDM number 1804 in 2006-07, proposed by Pete Wishart on 29/06/2007.

That this House acknowledges the important social aspect that bingo clubs provide in local communities; notes that they provide a safe environment and are sometimes the sole outlet for communication for some people, many of whom are elderly women; further notes that the industry is subject to the imposition of 17.5 per cent. VAT, while its immediate competitors in bookmaking and casinos are not; and suggests that the VAT taken by HM Treasury should be removed or significantly reduced in order to level the playing field, facilitate the survival of the industry and prevent further closures of bingo clubs in local communities across the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
