HC Deb 10 May 2004 vol 421 cc7-8W
Ms Dari Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will make a statement on the work of regional development agencies in developing tourism in Stockton, South. [171461]

Mr. Caborn

One North East (ONE) has secured the work programme of the former Northumberland Tourist Board through funding of £2.3 million and has committed an additional £1 million for tourism in line with its Corporate Plan. The development of the Tees corridor has been identified as a key priority for ONE's resources and this will have significant benefits for Stockton, South. Tourism development will also benefit from the Regional Image Strategy and Marketing budgets. ONE is also supporting the sub-regions in developing their own destination management organisations.
