HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c104W
29. Mr. Porter

asked the Paymaster General whether he proposes to provide financial support to the London Visitor and Convention Bureau, following the abolition of the Greater London Council; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

The Government already provide financial support to the LVCB through the English Tourist Board and this support will continue. I am happy to report that in addition to this support from the ETB, the London boroughs' grants committee is to provide in 1986–87 £360,000 of basic funding to the LVCB with a further £180,000 for special projects.
