HC Deb 10 December 1964 vol 703 c220W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many persons from home and overseas, respectively, took their holidays this year in the counties of Dorset, Devon, Somerset and Cornwall, respectively; and what estimate he has made of the annual increase to be expected.

Mr. Mason

I regret that the information is not available, but the British Travel Association estimates that in 1963 about six million British people took their holidays in the South-West, an area defined as Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
