Example text

Growth sectors of tourism developed with the emergence of new entrepreneurs and new investors in the industry sectors (see Chapters 4, 5 and 6), but progress initially was slow. Government and media alike regarded tourism as a sector of no real consequence. Manufacturing was ‘good’, services, especially non-essential tourism services, ‘bad’. Even the Government decision to provide limited financial support to back its British Travel and Holidays Association in the austerity era was greeted with media scorn, with one leader article declaring that ‘no foreigner in his senses would willingly come to this damp and dismal island’.

The Labour Government of the day believed in a centrally planned economy and society, and proceeded to nationalize the principal means of production according to its socialist principles. Ports and transport were included in nationalization as key industries. Because the pre-war railway companies had acquired a range of interests outside trains, railway nationalization brought into public ownership the country’s largest hotel chain, half the coach and bus companies, a major shipping line comprising cross-channel and other passenger ferries, and also principal travel agencies and tour operators, including Thomas Cook and Pickfords.
