Rural Tourism Inquiry update

Posted on

British Destinations wrote to Neil Parish MP the newly reappointed chairman of the EFR Select Committee in August 2017 urging the new committee, when appointed, to revisit the incomplete rural tourism inquiry, curtailed by the last election: Letter Chair EFRA Select Committee 8 Aug 17 .  MPs were selected this week to sit on the EFRA committee, those selected including a number of former members.  We have taken the opportunity this news presents to write again reaffirming our view that revisiting would be a popular move: Letter Chair EFRA Select Committee 14 Sep 17.

In August we encourage destinations, rural or otherwise, to consider contacting Neil Parish themselves, or to influence local or regional rural interest groups they may work with to contact him.  Clearly if you were able to do this you might want to consider contacting him again , or if didn’t contact him then doing so now off the back of the announcement of the appointment of the committee members.

The EFRA Committee release included the following

For immediate release: 12 September 2017

New Committee membership agreed

The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee membership for the 2017 Parliament has been agreed by the House.

    Hi Peter

    Thanks for your email re the BD/Tourism Alliance conference next March. It coincides with the LGA Culture, Tourism and Sport Board meeting also in London. So I shall be attending both. It looks as though I will be representing Coun Knight from Lancaster City CNCL on BD Exec as the LGA rep if he isn’t able to attend so I shall be happy to continue my interest with BD and of course our friendship. Pleased to receive your memo re rural tourism. I hope that Neil Parish MP takes a positive view

    Best wishes and hope you receive this email OK because I’m in the Dolomites in Northern Italian for a week’s HoL and IT reception is not supposed to be particularly good.
