Tuesday September 04, 2012

The Tourism Society welcomes the announcement that Maria Miller MP will be taking over the role of Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in the recently announced Cabinet reshuffle.

David Curtis-Brignell FTS, Chairman of the Tourism Society, commented: “Tourism has been recognised by the Government as one of the key industries to help get the British economy moving again, and I hope that Maria Miller will build on the extensive groundwork done by Jeremy Hunt over the last two years. He did a great job helping to promote Britain with the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and now the baton needs to be handed over successfully to capitalise on the opportunities over the coming months and into 2013.”
