VisitBritain: Finance

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what resources will be made available to VisitBritain for promoting overseas visits to the UK during and following the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games; and if she will make a statement. (138988)

VisitBritain is contributing fully to the tourism strategy for 2012 Olympic games and Paralympic games, which my Department expects to publish shortly. Should the strategy have implications for the levels of grant-in-aid funding allocated to VisitBritain's overseas marketing activities, these will be considered in the context of the present comprehensive spending review. That review is due to be completed in the autumn.
