Tourism: Olympic Games 2012

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether he plans to provide additional funding for tourism in respect of the London 2012 Olympics. (250851)

I have no plans to provide additional funding for tourism in respect of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in this comprehensive spending round.

The Government remain fully committed to tourism, as illustrated by the Prime Minister in his speech at the National Tourism Summit on 8 January 2009.

VisitBritain’s strategic review, to be presented in February 2009, will make the most of the substantial amounts that the public sector puts into tourism.
