Peter Aldous calls for East Anglia to take a more comprehensive approach to tourism

20th March 2019

Speaking in a debate on tourism in the East of England, Peter Aldous calls for the region to take a more comprehensive rather than the current piecemeal approach to tourism.

My hon. Friend is making a persuasive case for Colchester. I could do likewise for Lowestoft. Does he agree that for the east of England as a whole we should adopt a more comprehensive rather than piecemeal approach to showcasing our glories?

My hon. Friend is right; even in Colchester I do not think we are good enough at taking a holistic approach to our tourism offering. I have not spent much time in Waveney but I very much hope to. Essex and the eastern region as a whole should do far more—perhaps through local enterprise partnerships—to ensure we make an attractive proposition across the board, to spend a week in East Anglia and the east of England and sample the delights of the region.
