HC Deb 10 June 1991 vol 192 cc441-2W
Mr. Patchett

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what steps he will take to encourage the growth of employment in the tourism industry in Yorkshire.

Mr. Forth

[holding answer 7 June 1991]: In 1989 there were 127,800 people employed in the tourism industry in the Yorkshire and Humberside region, 24 per cent. more than in 1984. The Government will encourage further employment growth by reducing inflation, continuing our financial support for tourism and promoting enterprise and training through the network of training and enterprise councils now established in the region. The industry must also play its part by negotiating realistic pay settlements.
