HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 c127W
99. Mr. Rankin

asked the President of the Board of Trade what plans he proposes to increase the tourist trade in Scotland; and if he is satisfied that facilities for dealing with it in respect of hotels, hostels, roads, and so on are adequate.

Mr. Erroll

The Scottish Tourist Board and the British Travel and Holidays Association are continuing the publicity campaigns which have resulted in a steady increase in Scotland's tourist trade since the war. Where public services are inadequate for this growing traffic, improvement is taking place with the help of Government grants, and I hope that local interests concerned will also do what they can to improve hotel accommodation and other amenities.
