HC Deb 25 November 1999 vol 339 cc165-6W
Kali Mountford

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has for the Tourism Summit planned for the year 2000, as set out in the Government's tourism strategy document, "Tomorrow's Tourism". [100332]

Mr. Chris Smith

The first Tourism Summit will be held in London on 1 March 2000. It will be a small and businesslike meeting of key Ministers and top industry representatives to review progress in implementing "Tomorrow's Tourism" and to decide what more Government should do to help the sustainable growth of tourism. It will be an important stage in a wider process of reviewing progress in partnership with the industry, particularly through the reconstituted Tourism Forum. We will publish the outcome of the Summit in due course.
