£1.4 billion for Tourism

Two days ago I wrote about the strange position lots of tourist groups are in as the government makes its mind up about how it is going to stimulate, privatise or incentivise us to visit places. On Monday the tourism minister, John Penrose, said that local enterprise partnerships will be the main economic drivers and that they should work with local tourism bodies. Forget for the moment that this sounds suspiciously like what they are replacing but with different names and smaller geographic areas, it was what he said next that was important.
