HC Deb 13 March 1947 vol 434 c242W
110. Sir J. Mellor

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he still intends to encourage as many visitors as possible from overseas to come to Britain during 1947; and what new arrangements he proposes for tourists in view of the present economic position.

Sir S. Cripps

There has been no change in the policy of His Majesty's Government in encouraging visitors from overseas during 1947. For some time past intending tourists have been advised to arrange their accommodation in advance and also, in their own interests, to make sure that they have secured transport facilities for the two-way journey.
