HC Deb 10 December 1965 vol 722 c179W
Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many representations he has received from local tourist associations in Scotland about the composition of the Scottish Tourist Board; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

I have received such representations from two local tourist associations.

The Scottish Tourist Board is an independent non-statutory body whose constitution, like that of other companies limited by guarantee, is regulated by its Articles of Association. I consider that the Board, as recently reconstituted, should prove to be an effective executive body, representative of important interests directly concerned with the Scottish tourist industry.
