HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c107W
55. Mr. Butterfill

asked the Paymaster General if he plans any initiatives to promote an increase in the stock of hotel accommodation in London; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

The Government have noted the findings of consultancy study, "London's Tourist Accommodation in the 1990s", recently published by the English Tourist Board, British Tourist Authority and other sponsors. The report predicts a shortfall in hotel capacity by the early 1990s. We shall be responding shortly to its recommendations for increasing the supply of accommodation.
