There is one mention of tourism in the document under section 8.17 which deals with ensuring the free trade of services with European markets. However, the document contains no detail of what the Government’s approach is to tourism other than to say “In our new strategic partnership we will be aiming for the freest possible trade in services between the UK and EU Member States”
While the document is pretty light on details, one point of interest is the section on Immigration which seems to acknowledge that restricting migration from the EU will be detrimental to some industries.
We are considering very carefully the options that are open to us to gain control of the numbers of people coming to the UK from the EU. As part of that, it is important that we understand the impacts on the different sectors of the economy and the labour market. We will, therefore, ensure that businesses and communities have the opportunity to contribute their views.
