HC Deb 02 July 1986 vol 100 cc567-8W
27. Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the latest indicators for tourism in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Rifkind

It is too early to give an indication as to prospects for this year. The Scottish Tourist Board estimates that, last year, visitor spending in Scotland amounted to £1,439 million as compared with £1,423 million in 1984.
