§ Mr. Pendry
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage (1) what is his estimate of the number of properties regularly operating as hotels in England with fewer than six bed spaces; 
(2) how many hotels in England have more than six bed spaces. 
§ Mr. Dorrell
There are no figures on the number of bed spaces in hotels and similar establishments. However, the database of all serviced accommodation stock known to the English tourist board shows a total of 15,000 establishments with six bedrooms or less, and a further 14,250 with more than six bedrooms.
