Finance Bill Debate

I spoke last night on the Finance Bill, the measures announced in the Budget earlier this month.  Whilst I expressed concern on a number of points, not least the timescale for the reduction of Fixed Odd Betting stakes, I am happy to support the measures in this Bill, a number of which I feel will particularly benefit us in Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock. 

Update, 14th November:  I was very pleased to note this morning that the Government has been listening, as the timescale for the reduction of stakes has been brought forward from October to April next year.  Good news indeed!
