Following on from the evidence that the WTA provided in October, the External Affairs Committee has today published their report: Preparing for Brexit - Follow-up report on the preparedness of Welsh ports. A copy can be obtained from the link below.
The Wales Tourism Alliance highlighted a number of concerns about the implications of Brexit for the tourism sector: - In addition to emphasising the need for seamless travel, the WTA stated that there has been a singular lack on information and direction given which we believe has caused much widespread frustration. - The WTA also expressed concerns about the lack of time available for detailed analysis of the issues and preparation of the sector. - Wales Tourism Alliance stated that a no deal, hard border option would be the worst possible option and expressed a preference for the continuation of “seamless travel” after Brexit.
Andrew Campbell, Chair stated 'The WTA believe it would be helpful for the Welsh Government to demonstrate leadership by disseminating information to transport operators, stating that action is needed to allay fears and to provide urgent reassurance".
