§ Q29. Mr. Rees-Davies
asked the Prime Minister whether she will appoint a Minister for Tourism, having regard to the growth of this industry and the varied responsibilities which such a post would encompass.
§ The Prime Minister
I do not believe that such an appointment would necessarily improve the way in which this industry is already served by the Government and its specialised agencies. I am satisfied that my right hon. Friends are well able to handle tourism matters within their respective departmental briefs and that these arrangements fully recognise the importance of tourism.
