Tourism inquiry by Culture, Media & Sport Committee
The House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee has announced an inquiry into tourism. It is open for submissions until 29 September.
In 2013, there were 32.8 million visits to the UK by people living abroad; 39% of these were as part of a holiday. In the same year, UK residents paid almost twice as many – 58.5 million – visits abroad. The committee say that there is a shared interest in promoting a thriving tourist industry throughout the United Kingdom.
