HC Deb 06 March 1986 vol 93 c203W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the amount of cash given by the Welsh Development Agency to specific tourist-related projects in Wales for each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

The Welsh Development Agency provides grant aid to tourist-related projects through its land reclamation and environmental improvement activities. The agency has approved the following expenditure on tourist-related land reclamation and environmental improvement projects since 1981:

1981 278,000
1982 2,322,000
1983 2,316,000
1984 183,000
1985 908,000

The agency looks to the Wales tourist board to take the lead in identifying specific tourism development opportunities and is prepared to consider investing in viable tourist-related projects on a commercial basis.
