'Line in the sand' drawn over tourism funding
PROTECTING the amount of funding given to Jersey tourism is crucial for the Island's economy, says the Economic Development Minister.
Senator Alan Maclean told a Scrutiny hearing for the establishment of a new tourism shadow board that the money being put into tourism had been slashed for too many years and drawing a line underneath the cuts was key in order to help boost the economy.
'For too many years tourism had taken a hit and seen its funding reduced and reduced,' he said. 'Now I have put a stop to that, drawn a line in the sand and maintained the budget which is crucial to maximise its value to the economy.'
