HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 cc345-6W
Mr. Lomas

asked the President of the Board of Trade what assistance, and in what form, he intends to give to the British Travel Association in its campaign to boost Great Britain as a holiday resort.

Mr. Jay

All the Association's work is directed to promoting tourism in Britain or encouraging the development of British tourist facilities: this year its grant from the Board of Trade will amount to over £2 million. Additionally, the Board of Trade propose to contribute £39,000 towards the Association's campaign—which this year will cost £75,000—for encouraging our own people to spend their holidays in Britain.
