To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what measures he has taken to support the British seaside tourist industry. 
§ Mr. Tom Clarke
Seaside towns are an important part of the domestic tourism market. The Government's strategy for tourism will be effective, comprehensive and will benefit all areas, including seaside towns. One of the Forum Working Groups, which is helping with the development of the strategy for tourism, is looking particularly at issues relevant to resorts.
