HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 cc48-9W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the present proportion of the amount of Government hospitality expenditure per annum employed on the provision of encouragement of hospitality for functions provided by trade associations and similar bodies in this country which attract a substantial number of visitors from overseas to assist the export trade; and whether he will consider an early and substantial increase in this amount.

Mr. Amery

None. The Government Hospitality Fund arranges functions on behalf of Her Majesty's Government at the request of a sponsoring Government Department.
