HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c100W
23. Mr. Chapman

asked the Paymaster General what is his latest estimate of the number of tourists from the United States expected to visit Britain in 1986; and how this compares with 1985.

Mr. Trippier

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave earlier today to the hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Davies).

24. Mr. Geraint Howells

asked the Paymaster General what is the effect of the shortfall on previous years of United States tourists on employment within the tourist industry.

Mr. Trippier

It is too soon to assess the extent of any reduction in the number of United States tourists and the consequences for employment within the United Kingdom tourist industry.
