§ Mr. Tom Clarke
I shall be visiting Southport on Wednesday 25 June to address the National Conference of the Institute of Leisure and Amenity Management. I will be visiting north-west England again later in the year.
Coastal resorts are an important part of our heritage and account for some 44 per cent. of holiday spending in the United Kingdom. I am keen to see them build on this in the future so that local communities and businesses can share fully in the economic benefits of tourism.
