HC Deb 31 March 1987 vol 113 c459W
16. Mr. Butterfill

asked the Paymaster General what action he proposes to take to encourage the dispersal of tourism from London in the light of the report "Tourism in London: Resident Opinion Survey by the London Tourist Board and Convention Bureau", a copy of which has been forwarded to him; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

I share the view of the large majority of residents questioned who felt that tourists should be encouraged to spend time in other parts of Britain as well as London. It is a priority of the British Tourist Authority and English tourist board to encourage the wider dispersal of visitors throughout the country.
