P-05-987 Update guidelines so family run Adult Gaming Centres qualify for Business Grants in Wales
This petition was submitted by Delucia Sidoli having collected a total of 706 signatures.
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.
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.
This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 15/09/2020.
The Committee considered the petition for the first time and in light of the fact that the Minister has no intention of changing the guidance in relation to the grants scheme, and the scheme has now closed to new applications, the Committee agreed to close the petition and thank the petitioner.
