HC Deb 19 July 1982 vol 28 c4W
25. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Minister for Trade when he plans to announce the details of his proposals to amend the Development of Tourism Act 1969.

Mr. Sproat

I have no plans to do so at present but my hon. Friend will know that I recently decided that grants under section 4 of the Development of Tourism Act 1969 should no longer be tied to assisted areas. This move has been widely welcomed. I am also conducting a radical and comprehensive review of the way in which we handle tourism in Great Britain.
