Take Tourism Seriously Campaign And The Olympic Games

EDM number 396 in 2007-08, proposed by Don Foster on 27/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Public expenditure, Service industries, Sports and Tourism.

That this House supports the Tourism Alliance in its Take Tourism Seriously campaign; notes that tourism is worth £85 billion to the UK economy; further notes that tourism is one of the UK's largest industries, employing over two million people; expresses great concern that the Government has cut funding for VisitBritain over the last decade and most recently by £9 million over the next three years; believes that this is part of a larger picture of the downgrading of tourism's importance to national policy; and urges the Government not to squander the opportunities provided by the 2012 Olympic Games to leave behind a strong tourism legacy for the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
