HC Deb 11 June 2002 vol 386 c1185W
8. Mr. Lazarowicz

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps she is taking to promote Scottish tourism. [57386]

Mrs. Liddell

I am undertaking a wide range of events to assist in promoting tourism to Scotland. On 15 May I hosted a reception for the overseas and UK managers of the BTA. On 26 June, I will join my right hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and the Secretary of State for Wales in hosting a reception at Dover House to thank the partners of the BTA for their contribution to the one million extra visitors advertising campaign.

My Friends of Scotland team work very closely with the BTA and VisitScotland to ensure that the tourism message is a key part of my efforts to promote Scotland around the world.
