Carlisle MP Asks Secretary of State for DCMS to Visit


MP for Carlisle, John Stevenson MP has invited Secretary of State for Department, Culture Media and Sport to Carlisle to showcase the City’s tourism offer as businesses in the industry reopen.

The Government has released its roadmap out of lockdown. Over the next few weeks the tourist industry and hospitality industry will start to open up across Britain. These industries are a critical part of the economy in Cumbria, and more locally, in Carlisle.

John Stevenson MP for Carlisle said

“I have written to Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for DCMS asking him to visit Carlisle and Cumbria to demonstrate the importance of tourism and the hospitality industry to our city and Cumbria.

This will give him an opportunity to visit some of our visitor attractions, such as Tullie House and meet with tourism and hospitality businesses as we come out of lockdown.

I very much look forward to welcoming him to the county!”
