HC Deb 29 February 1968 vol 759 c414W
Q10. Sir G. de Freitas

asked the Prime Minister, whether he will designate a Minister as Minister for Tourism.

The Prime Minister:

Her Majesty's Government, of course, recognise the importance of the tourist industry. But, as my right hon. Friend will know, responsibility for tourism already rests with my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade, assisted by my hon. Friend the Minister of State, and I doubt whether any new arrangement would serve the cause of tourism better. However, if my right hon. Friend has any specific proposals to make, I would be happy to consider them.
