asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, as part of any future general scheme for expenditure on public works during a trade depression, he will include plans for rendering our inland and seaside holiday and health resorts and spas attractive by improving the hotels, the indoor entertainments, and outdoor sports, by all of which Continental resorts attract visitors from the United Kingdom?
