§ 21. Mr. Moonman
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what guidelines he has prepared in planning a national tourist policy for Great Britain; and if he will make a statement on the need to maintain the viability of the industry.
§ Mr. Deakins
My right hon. Friend announced the policy guidelines for tourism on 21st November 1974, and they have not been changed. These guidelines take account of the environmental and financial constraints of the foreseeable future as well as the great importance of tourism for our balance of payments and for our regional economies.
