Viscount Exmouth

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How they allocate grant-in-aid for the promotion of tourism and tourism-related projects.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of National Heritage (Lord Inglewood):

Responsibility for allocating funding to the statutory tourist hoards rests with the Secretary of State for National Heritage, in the case of the British Tourist Authority and the English Tourist Board, and with the Secretaries of State for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales for each of the home country tourist hoards. The allocation is determined by the relevant Secretary of State after taking account of needs and priorities.
