Culture, Media and Sport Questions: Tourism Visa

I have asked the Minister of State for DCMS how the Government will help not hinder our thriving tourist industry in North Wales. It is important that North Wales isn’t left behind the tourism boom we are experiencing, especially after we were named as one of the top ten places to visit in 2017 by The Lonely Planet Guide.

We need to benefit from the tourist pound and that means making sure that when we leave the EU we don’t lock out valuable tourists. That is why I asked what actions the Government are planning to take to protect the tourist visa.

Yet again I received a non-answer from the Minister; kind in praising what we have on offer for tourists in North Wales, but not address the substantive issue of my question.

The more tourists we can attract to North Wales the stronger our local economy becomes. This will bring with it more decent jobs for our community.
