Plaid Cymru fully acknowledges the importance of the tourism sector to the Welsh economy. We would support a range of fiscal measures including reducing VAT to help develop the sector further and help our country make the most of our potential as a tourism destination.
Jonathan Edwards MP (Plaid Cymru), Carmarthen East and Dinefwr
Tourism is a highly important and growing sector of the Welsh economy, and it’s particularly true in my constituency of Ynys Môn – the Isle of Anglesey. We should use all tools available to give tourism a boost – and that includes taking advantage of our ability to cut VAT within the sector.
Rhun ap Iorwerth AM (Plaid Cymru), Ynys Môn
The suggestion made… to reduce VAT on tourism is a sensible one. Tourism is one of the fastest growing global industries, and we live in a global time.
Albert Owen MP (Lab), Ynys Môn
It is not just competition across national boundaries that makes a difference; it is competition within the tourism sector… We need a level playing field.
Dr Sarah Wollaston MP (Con), Totnes
I have been a big supporter of this campaign and have made my points very clear to successive ministers. I believe by cutting VAT will increase levels of incoming tourism and making the United Kingdom much more attractive to visit. Incoming tourism is new money into the economy of this county and should be encouraged where possible.
Paul Maynard MP (Conservative), Blackpool North and Cleveleys
Brighton and Hove had a bumper year for foreign visitors in 2012 but the Government could be doing much more to help. Cutting VAT on tourism would make a real difference to local businesses and help create jobs for people in Brighton and Hove. It would also be another great reason for people to take their holidays in the UK.
Caroline Lucas MP (Green), Brighton Pavilion
