The DCMS Select Committee has issued a call for written evidence on the impact of Covid-19 on all sectors under DCMS stewardship, with an initial closing date of 1 May 20.
Although not specifically targeted at tourism, this inquiry’s questions gives an opportunity for the tourism sectors to illustrate the impacts, thus far, to comment on the actions of DCMS and DCMS sponsored arms-length bodies, to make the case for further support during the current and potentially extended lock-down and to outline any additional support that may be needed in what increasing seems likely to be a protracted recovery period.
British Destination will submit a response, with an emphasis on the domestic market, based on the information already gleaned from the membership and any addition comments and information that you may now wish to provide. In addition, some member destinations may want to submit evidence to the committee themselves.
