Endorsement from Councillor Kevin Peel (Labour), Manchester Central
"There are 52 betting shops in my constituency, central Manchester and more on the way. Bookmakers with their addictive high stake, hard core gaming machines are preying on the most vulnerable in society. It has to stop and that is why, with the help of the Campaign for Fairer Gambling, I opposed the 53rd shop planned by William Hills in Manchester.
