The MP for Boston and Skegness has spoken of his pride for Skegness as a popular holiday destination.
MP Mark Simmonds says he is delighted that the government is funding VisitEngland to run marketing campaigns encouraging people living in the UK to take their holidays in England.
“It is always a source of great pride for me that Skegness consistently provides fun and happy holidays for so many British families. This summer has been no different,” he said
“The government aims to increase the proportion of UK residents choosing to holiday in England to match those who holiday abroad. Judging by the number of visitors to Skegness, the scheme must be having some success,” he added.
The Government has made 80 recommendations to change or reduce regulations, including 60 regulations in hospitality, food and drink, as part of the red tape challenge, the MP claims.
“We have a great reputation as a top British holiday resort, which will only increase with further growth,” he said
“Local councillors and communities are working hard to make Skegness an attractive destination for holidaymakers and I am pleased that the government is committed to supporting their endeavours,” he added.
