§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will take steps to place with the Wales Tourist Board responsibility for all promotion of international tourism in Wales; and if he will ensure it an adequate budget to take over these responsibilities from the British Tourist Authority.
§ Mr. John Stradling Thomas
No. The present arrangements whereby the British Tourist Authority operates in close co-operation with the Wales Tourist Board work well and as a result Wales benefits fully from the rang of skills and resources available to the British Tourist Authority. I announced on 17 November new arrangements for strengthening Welsh involvement in the British Tourist Authority's marketing programme. —[Vol. 48, c. 531.]
