asked the Secretary of State for Trade what representations he has received about the three tourism development projects initiated by his Department; and if he is satisfied with progress so far.

asked the Secretary of State for Trade why the Wales and Scottish Tourist Boards, together, are to receive more money than England in 1977–78 in the form of selective tourist project assistance.

Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales. These are not, therefore, determined centrally, but allocated having regard to the overall economic needs and potential of the country concerned.
