To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many staff in his Department are engaged (a) full-time and (b) part-time in aspects of his Department’s responsibilities relating to tourism. (202521)

[holding answer 29 April 2008]: The number of staff working part-time on aspects of the Department’s responsibilities for tourism is 18. As part of our re-structuring, we have established a central programme team and where necessary, would call on resources there to undertake specific projects or programmes of work relating to tourism policy. Five of the nine staff working full-time on tourism issues have already been drawn from this team.
