Report from the Culture, Media Sport Committee

The Culture Media and Sport Committee has published their 6th Report on Tourism.

The committee was seeking to establish how the tourism industry can be developed to benefit the national and local economies. Key Committee conclusions are:

  • abolishing the RDAs “without putting in place adequate arrangements for tourism promotion was a mistake” and “while LEPs undergo their period of evolution, valuable ground is being lost”;
  • VisitEngland’s budget is dwarfed by that of VisitScotland and VisitWales budgets; with adequate resources, VisitEngland is well placed to fill the organisational vacuum left by the RDAs;
  • the Government should review the successful Coastal Communities Fund to determine whether it should be continued beyond 2016-17 and how its focus could be improved.
