§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Paymaster General if he has any plans to make arrangements to assist retailers of food and refreshments in seaside towns who have suffered severe losses in consequence of the bad weather.
§ Mr. Trippier
We have no such plans but through the activities of the English tourist board the Government are encouraging seaside resorts to broaden their tourism base and develop all weather attractions. For commercial interests dependent on tourism this is the best insurance in the longer term against the uncertainties of the British climate.
