HC Deb 02 April 1982 vol 21 cc203-4W
Mr. Chapman

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what information is available to his Department of the total number of overseas visitors who stayed in London hotels during the last 12 months for which figures are available; and how many of them stayed for one night only, for two nights to seven nights, and for over a week, respectively.

Mr. Sproat

In 1980, some 5.9 million overseas visitors stayed in London hotels. About 15 per cent. stayed for one night only, 65 per cent. for two to seven nights and 20 per cent. for over a week.
