EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell wants to see Eastbourne’s tourism included in Wednesday’s Budget.

She said: “Our tourism sector is the economic life-blood of our town with over 1 in 4 jobs dependent on the trade. 

I joined over 40 Parliamentarians organised by my colleague and fellow Conservative MP to lobby for further support for the tourism sector so we can see it thrive. 

During the pandemic I campaigned hard to see VAT on tourism reduced and I know this helped the sector survive and retain jobs for our town. 

I very much hope to see tourism supported in the Chancellor’s budget.”
