Impact Of Spending Cuts On Seaside Resort Economies

EDM number 982 in 2010-12, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 10/11/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Marine environment and Public expenditure.

That this House notes the seven local authority areas with the largest percentage of their population in receipt of Local Housing Allowance are all coastal areas containing some of the nation's best known seaside resorts; further notes that seaside resorts dependent on tourism tend to have economies built on low value, low paid, insecure employment where cuts to welfare cannot easily be replaced outside of the black economy; and calls on the Government to review urgently the impact of welfare reforms on coastal economies, and seaside resorts in particular, so that such areas do not suffer disproportionately from public spending cuts.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
