§ Mr. Probert
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what further assistance is to be given to help the development of tourism in Wales.
§ Mrs. White
I am very glad to say that the Government is at present discussing with the Development Commission the final details of a scheme to help tourism in parts of the country where there is little industrial employment, including some of the most beautiful areas of the Principality. The Commission's assistance—which will be directed towards the smaller enterprises in the tourist field— 355W will probably take the form of a loan scheme but this has not yet been finally decided.
The Chairman of the Wales Tourist Board tells me that he warmly welcomes this prospect of assistance. He has been closely associated with the discussions of possible schemes and the Board will have an important part to play in making a success of the new proposal in Wales.
