HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 c44W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Paymaster General, further to his reply of 12 December, Official Report, column 724, if he will bring forward structural changes to the United Kingdom tourist organisations in order to assist in the promotion abroad of regional tourist attractions.

Mr. Trippier

The British Tourist Authority already works closely with the English regional tourist boards in its overseas promotional campaigns and the regional boards are free to mount their own overseas promotions if they wish. I am aware that the first report of the Trade and Industry Committee 1985–86, "Tourism in the UK" includes recommendations for changes in the present tourist boards structure. The Government will give a considered reply to this report in due course.
