"Unafraid to argue her point, Victoria will get the best deal for both the UK tourism industry and British holiday maker."

Victoria Ayling said, "I am delighted to be appointed Tourism and Heritage Spokesman for UKIP. 

"Tourism accounted for 9% of our GDP and 3.1m jobs in 2013 and is growing.  This is such an important part of our economy and particularly for many of our struggling seaside towns that everything must be done to encourage tourism.  In addition to promoting staycations for those of us in the UK, it is essential that we attract as many overseas tourists as possible to come here and spend.

"Our heritage is one of the biggest attractions for all tourists and it is essential to promote it with pride.  As a keen National Trust, Georgian Group and English Heritage Member I understand how important it is to work with such organisations to do this.

"However it is not just buildings, our Heritage includes traditional British food and drink and pubs,  entertainments whether they be Morris Men or Shakespearian Plays and of course the popular seaside shows such as Punch and Judy.

"I look forward to holding the Government to account over our Tourism industry and to make sure our own Heritage is not dumbed down due to political correctness.  Britain is a great place to visit and is open for business all year round!"
