HC Deb 13 July 1999 vol 335 c132W
Miss Geraldine Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what steps the Government are taking to improve transport links to seaside resorts. [90373]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The Government are working with a wide range of bodies, including local authorities, regional planning bodies, the Highways Agency, the rail and bus industries and transport user groups, to deliver its integrated transport strategy. Where relevant, transport links to seaside resorts would be considered in this work. We are also encouraging the tourism industry to improve information about public transport links and alternative transport modes to tourist attractions.
