To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she has met the English Tourist Council to discuss the acceptance of euro notes and coins. [26195]

Dr. Howells

I have not met with the English Tourism Council to discuss this matter.

The British Tourist Authority has recently issued revised guidance for the tourism industry on the euro which includes a checklist of action points and advice on authenticating banknotes. Further guidance will be issued if it is needed.
