mayor Ken Livingstone has set aside £15 million to boost London tourism once
the war is over.
said the capital’s tourist industry has already seen a downturn in people
coming into the city because of the war, with business travel particularly hit.
“Hotel occupation isn’t too bad at the weekend, but during the week it is way
down,” he said.
Greater London Authority has predicted the capital stands to lose £500 million
due to the war, and anything up to £10 billion if attacked by terrorists.
