HC Deb 26 July 1999 vol 336 c74W
16. Mr. Quinn

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps his Department is taking to encourage family holidays at UK seaside resorts, with particular reference to Scarborough and Whitby. [91354]

Janet Anderson

Our strategy, "Tomorrow's Tourism", contains a host of initiatives designed to promote quality in tourism in this country, including a model regeneration plan for resorts. It also identifies actions to help increase access to tourism for those with low incomes, for families, for elderly people and for people with disabilities.

Single Regeneration Budget awards of over half a million pounds to the Yorkshire and Humberside Coastal Tourism Initiative (which includes Scarborough and Whitby) and almost £3 million to the Falsgrave Community Investment Initiative in Scarborough will help encourage families to holiday in the area.
