HC Deb 15 March 1932 vol 263 c193W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement as to whether it is still advisable in the national interest for those who wish to travel abroad for their health to refrain from doing so in order to support the position of sterling?


Until our situation is more fully consolidated, it must remain preferable in the national interest that money spent on holiday travel should be spent in this country rather than abroad. The question how far reasons of health should outweigh this consideration must be left to the discretion of individuals, but the fact that, as I understand, a good deal has been done to improve the accommodation and amenities of British health resorts and watering places will, no doubt, be taken into account.
