asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he has now received the reports which he called for in his parliamentary reply on 21st November, col. 525–526; whether he will publish them; and whether he will make a statement.
My right hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Secretary of State for Wales and I have received a joint report from the national tourist boards and the British Tourist Authority. As a study of the implications for their work of certain conclusions reached by Government, the report has rightly looked some period ahead. It is understandably in the nature of an interim commentary calling for further consolidation in the light of further discussion with us before the desirability of any publication or statement can usefully be considered.
