HC Deb 08 June 2004 vol 422 c355W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans are in place for the development of tourist facilities and attractions at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board; and if he will make a statement. [174092]

Mr. Gardiner

The recent 'Tourism in Northern Ireland—A Strategic Framework for Action 2004–07' has identified Belfast, and in particular its historical connections with Titanic (Maritime) Belfast, as one of five signature projects for Northern Ireland tourism.

Belfast city council and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board intend to commission research into realising the potential of the 'Titanic' theme for Belfast and Northern Ireland.
