§ Baroness Anelay of St Johns
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is their response to the evidence in the report, Sightseeing in the UK 1998 (published by the English Tourism Council), that for the first time more attractions are recorded as having closed than those opened as new businesses. [HL904]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
This is an issue we are watching closely and which we have asked the English Tourism Council to address when developing its strategy to help plan for the longer-term success of the attractions sector. ETC will be working in partnership with the attractions industry and proposes to deliver the strategy to government by September 2000.
