§ 40. Mr. Golding
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations his Department has received from the West Midlands Tourist Board about the Government's policy towards tourism; what has been the reply; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Chataway
The chairman of the board wrote supporting the view that grants under Section 4 of the Development of Tourism Act should be extended to all parts of the country. The reply given by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State was, in essence, the same as that which he gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock (Mr. Cormack) on 10th July.—[Vol. 859, c.325.]
