§ 84. Sir W. Anstruther-Gray
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he received from the Scottish Tourist Board a 10-point plan for expanding the Scottish 19W industry; whether he accepts these 10 points; and, in particular, whether he proposes to establish a capital fund guaranteed by the Government from which hotel and boarding-house keepers could borrow at reasonable rates the money they require to enlarge or modernise their premises.
§ Mr. Ross
The Board's proposals were submitted on 28th September. Local planning authorities are pressing ahead with the preparation of tourist development proposals for their areas. More generally, I am reviewing the whole question of developing tourism in Scotland, in consultation with my right hon. Friend, the President of the Board of Trade.
