HC Deb 26 October 1976 vol 918 cc198-9W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Trade by how much, in real terms, the overseas spending budget of the British Tourist Authority has been reduced this year because of the devaluation of the £ sterling.

Mr. Clinton Davis

The British Tourist Authority calculates that the impact could be of the order of £800,000 if the effect of devaluation were allowed to fall wholly on its overseas programmes and if industry is not prepared, in respect of the services offered by the authority which it particularly values, to help bridge the gap.
