HC Deb 09 December 1983 vol 50 c265W
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.]
