HC Deb 27 November 1979 vol 974 cc635-6W
Mr. Allan Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any changes have been made to cash limits for 1979–80, which are within his responsibility since the White Paper on revised cash limits, Cmnd. 7604, was published in June.

Mr. Younger

The list of changes to cash limits within my responsibility is as follows:

of its grant to help finance the 12 regional tourist boards in England.

The Scottish and Wales Tourist Boards are the responsibilities of my right hon. Friends the respective Secretaries of State. They are funded in a similar way to the English Board—the amounts are shown in class IV, Votes 5 and 6 of the Supply Estimates. From its grant the WTB assists the three regional tourism councils in Wales; there are no comparable regional organisations in Scotland.

Government assistance given by other Departments to various bodies indirectly encourages tourism.
