The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Hospitality and Tourism
The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Hospitality was originally founded in November 2018, as a rebrand of the previous APPG for the Visitor Economy. Following the 2019 General Election, the APPG for Hospitality and Tourism was created following the merger between the APPGs for Hospitality and Tourism.
The official listing of the Group can be found here.

Coasts and Waters
The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Hospitality and Tourism has launched an inquiry into ‘Coasts and Waters.’ The UK’s coastline plays a vital role in the economy, history and culture of our country, while our lakeside regions provide popular tourism hotspots, areas of natural beauty and employment for thousands of people countrywide. This inquiry will take a holistic look at both coastal and lakeside regions, as well as canals and waterways.
The timing is crucial; tourism is highly seasonal, and its wider ecosystem depends on having significant numbers of people visiting. Local businesses such as pubs, restaurants, visitor attractions, shops, gardens and many other businesses depend on domestic and inbound tourism to stay afloat. COVID-19 has ravaged the sector this year, with a protracted recovery period a certainty.
If you wish to respond to our Coasts and Waters consultation, please respond to the relevant questions below and send your submissions in to Richard Clifford at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions to this consultation will be Wednesday 19th August at 5:00pm.
The response that you submit to the All Party Parliamentary Group for Hospitality and Tourism will be used to inform the groups report, due for publication in late September 2020. By responding to the consultation, you will provide the group with important information which will ultimately help members make recommendations to Government. All respondents to the consultation will have the name of their business/organisation included in the annex of the report.
Please respond to whichever questions you feel are relevant to your business/organisation. Please also identify your organisation and whether you operate in a coastal or lakeside location.
