Anne Milton: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether guidance has been produced on alcohol (a) served and (b) consumed on the gaming floor area of new casinos licensed under the Gambling Act 2005. 
Mr. Caborn: No such guidance has yet been produced in relation to the new casinos permitted by the Gambling Act 2005. The Gambling Commission has published guidance in relation to alcohol on the gaming floor of casinos licensed under the 1968 Act, and the regulation of alcohol provision in the new casinos will be developed from this model.
If it becomes clear that alcohol is becoming a problem in either existing casinos or those new casinos permitted by the 2005 Act, there are powers under the Licensing Act 2003 and the Gambling Act 2005 to stop it being served.

James Brokenshire: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps her Department is taking to (a) promote awareness of the Paralympic Games and (b) maximise the potential opportunities for people with disabilities taking part in sport as a consequence of the Paralympic Games; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Caborn: We are committed to working with others to maximise media coverage and exposure of the Paralympic Games and to promoting the Games nationwide. In 2012, the Olympic stakeholders will implement an innovative promotional programme for the Paralympic Games that generates excitement among a wide range of audiences. Among those specifically targeted will be schools, community groups, sports clubs and special interest groups.
The Paralympic Games in 2012 will motivate more people with disabilities in the UK to take part in sport. We will work with Sport England to sustain this legacy after 2012, in line with our commitment to increase sports participation for disabled people. This will include greater access to modern facilities and greater awareness and interest in healthier lifestyles. There will also be support, training, new career opportunities for coaches and volunteers, and visibility for sports that are not currently widely played in the UK.
