§ Mr. Austin Mitchell
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the trade surplus or deficit on tourism in each year since 1970 at 1994 prices; and what assessment he has made of the contributions to the variations made by the monetary and exchange rate policies of successive Governments. 
§ Mr. Nelson
Figures for the balance of trade in tourism are available on the Central Statistical Office database, which can be accessed through the Library of the House.
The balance of trade in tourism is influenced by many factors, and it is not possible to isolate with any confidence the effects stemming from monetary and exchange rate policies.
