HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 cc31-2W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what consideration he has given to the section of the annual report of the British Tourist Authority submitted to him showing its ownership of freehold premises such as that in Buenos Aires; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Meacher

These premises are the only freehold property in this country or overseas owned by the British Tourist Authority. They are one of the BTA's two offices in South America and were purchased in 1974, when the lease was being terminated, in circumstances which made the acquisition of the freehold the most economic proposition.
