UKHospitality took the lead and co-ordinated all the sector specifics. PASC UK, the ASSC (Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers) and Premier Cottages co-ordinated this work for self-catering, and had additional input from The Wales Association of Self-Caterers, the Tourism Alliance, Wales Tourism Alliance and the Scottish Tourism Alliance.
