P-05-987 Update guidelines so family run Adult Gaming Centres qualify for Business Grants in Wales

Text of Petition:                      

Many towns in Wales have an Adult Gaming Centre (AGC). Of all the AGCs in Wales, only a handful are operated by national chains, the rest are family run.

 

Welsh Government is currently adamant that they will not update COVID Business Grant guidelines to support these family run AGCs. AGCs are also excluded from the Economic Resilience Fund.

 

Some AGCs in Wales have operated since the 80s and all employ local people. The current lack of support is putting hundreds of Welsh jobs at risk.

 

Additional Information:

AGCs have been included in the grant schemes in England and in Scotland, and businesses in those countries have confirmed they have received the grants.
