UK casino scene

Can there be clarity and consensus on complex issues?

Paul Buchanan, Hall Aitken director based in our Glasgow office, has written an article for Casino and Gaming International magazine.

The introduction to the article is copied below.

Over the past couple of years Hall Aitken, an independent consultancy working in the field of regeneration, has undertaken several commissions on the impacts of casinos in the UK for public and private sector organisations. This research has shown that there is a broad spectrum of opinion on the effects of casinos in the UK and that opinions tend to be highly polarised between the pro and anti camps. Any review of existing research will show that the issues are highly complex and that, if anything, the grey areas or the areas that need clarification outweigh the areas of agreement.
