On the last day of parliament for the year 2017, the Brexit Committee released 39 sector reports including the one on Tourism. The report is a run-through structure, volume and value of sector and outlines the linkages with the EU in terms of tourism trade, funding, regulatory regime and the framework for trade outside the EU. There are three main points of interest:
- The report appears to have been written within the last two months as a number of the figures (IPS figures) were not available prior to this ( a generous view might be that the document has been recently updated)
- The section on the views of the industry has been redacted – which suggests that these views did not express overwhelming support for Brexit
- There is no analysis of the impact of Brexit on the tourism industry.
