HC Deb 29 March 1988 vol 130 c433W
101. Mr. Butterfill

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what is being done to ensure that self-catering holiday accommodation is maintained at a high standard.

Mr. Lee

The English Tourist Board offered a total of nearly £1 million in the 1986–87 financial year towards the costs of developing and upgrading self-catering accommodation. At the beginning of 1988, the board introduced the holiday homes approval scheme. Accommodation approved under this voluntary scheme will have met minimum standards of cleanliness and quality.
