Volume 464: debated on Friday 19 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what meetings (a) Ministers and (b) officials from his Department have had with representatives of the tourism industry in the last six months. (155756)

DCMS Ministers and officials have held a full programme of meetings with the tourism industry since April 2007, reflecting the importance of the sector within the Department.

This has included meetings with individual companies and representative bodies in the private sector; and with VisitBritain, the Regional Development Agencies, and other representatives of the public sector in tourism.

With my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, I have also twice met representatives of the sector in the Tourism Industry Emergency Response Group.
