Leading member of UK trade association urges members to engage with prospective MPs ahead of General Election

Jeremy Godden, Managing Director of the Godden Gaming Organisation is encouraging his fellow Bacta members to engage with their Prospective Parliamentary Candidates and encourage them to “finish the job of modernising the country’s gambling regulations.”

A member of Bacta’s National Council, Jeremy Godden outlined why the political campaign needs to go up a gear with the election less than three weeks away.

He stated: “We need to ensure that all Prospective Parliamentary Candidates understand why the changes proposed in the white paper are crucial to the long term sustainability of the UK’s family entertainment centres and adult gaming centres.

“We want amusement arcades to be top of the political agenda given their importance within the tourism offering at our seaside resorts.”

Providing broader context to the issues he will be presenting to his prospective Labour Party MP, Polly Billington he said:. “My core message is that we are in a ‘cost of doing business crisis’ and we need to finish the job of the white paper.”

“I cannot stress how important the next three weeks are: we must take the opportunity to lobby candidates before they are elected to Parliament in order to ensure our sector is firmly on the political agenda.”
