HC Deb 20 December 1989 vol 164 c293W
Mr. Kirkwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he now proposes to take to promote increased tourism from countries in eastern Europe; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lang

The British Tourist Authority and the Scottish Tourist Board, as the statutory bodies with responsibility for attracting overseas visitors to Scotland, are fully aware of the potential of the eastern European market. Both bodies will take account of recent developments in considering their future marketing plans.
