Exiting the EU: Inbound Passengers

During the Exiting the EU: Inbound Passengers debate on the 23rd February 2017, Margaret Ritchie (Social Democratic and Labour Party) asked Chris Grayling (The Secretary of State for Transport) what discussions had taken place to reduce VAT to encourage more inbound tourists.

The exchange is below.

In addition to the ongoing discussions with UK ports and airports, what discussions have taken place with the Treasury about encouraging inbound passengers by reducing VAT on tourism?
