HC Deb 22 December 1988 vol 144 c461W
Mr. Franks

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how many hotels and tourism-related establishments have received section 4 grants since 1987; how many of these are in Cumbria; and if he expects to make an announcement on Government support for the tourism industry in the near future.

Mr. Lee

Between April 1987 and November 1988 the English tourist board made offers of section 4 grant assistance to 1,008 hotel and tourism-related projects, of which 72 are in Cumbria. I shall shortly be considering the outcome of the review of tourism policy which I announced in July. This is bound to take a little time, but I will make a further announcement as soon as possible.
