HC Deb 02 February 1988 vol 126 cc554-5W
51. Mr. Beaumont-Dark

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how much has been invested in conference and exhibition centres in Britain over the past 10 years.

Mr. Lee

Figures are not available for Britain over the past 10 years. However, the English tourist board's survey of investment in projects costing over £0.5 million shows that for the year 1987 a total of £202.9 million was invested in England in conference centres and theatres.
