HC Deb 25 July 1979 vol 971 cc286-7W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on his policy in relation to the provision of interest relief grants for commercial development in relation to tourism.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

This power is not available to the Scottish Tourist Board at present. The Government are considering the way in which the tourist industry is assisted to see whether changes are needed but have not yet made any decision.
