Backing tourism businesses

The Welsh Government, along with their coalition partners Plaid Cymru, are pushing ahead with plans to introduce a tourism tax in Wales.

Taxing the tourism industry is simply not the right thing to do as we rebuild from the pandemic and face ever-growing cost of living pressures.

We need to be supporting the sector and encouraging people to holiday in Wales, not punishing them and deterring visitors.

My Welsh Conservative colleagues and I will continue fighting against these controversial tourism tax plans, which will leave livelihoods hanging in the balance.
