Government on the tourist trail with new regional funding plan

David Cameron will today unveil the Government's new five point plan to boost tourism across the UK, with £15m in funding available to the north and the south west of England. A group of ministers led by Culture Secretary John Whittingdale will focus on improving collaboration in the tourism sector. The group will also look at skills, jobs, regulation and transport. Some £5m will be allocated to position the south west as a tourism destination and there will be a £10m fund to help Northern destinations attract more international visitors. The Prime Minister will also announce a new £1m Rail for Tourism competition to find ways of making exploring the UK by rail more attractive to tourists.
