Nick Harvey

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much has been spent by her Department on marketing London tourism in the last 12 months. [91378]

Dr. Howells

In 2002–03 my Department will grant aid the Greater London Authority £1.9 million in respect of its statutory tourism responsibilities, of which £1.5 million is specifically for marketing London as a tourist destination, both in its own right and as a gateway to the UK regions. In addition, London has benefited from the £54.5 million grant-in-aid to the British Tourism Authority in 2002–03 for the promotion of Britain abroad.
