LABOUR: Bannatyne leads review of seaside towns

Bannatyne leads review of seaside townsLabour leader Gordon Brown has launched Labour's Seaside Manifesto todayto help seaside towns achieve their potential.He was joined by leisure entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne, who will lead areview into the economic and tourism potential of seaside towns up anddown the country.

Mr Brown outlined the important role they have to play in ourcountry's future, benefiting from new opportunities such as low carbonbusinesses and economic regeneration.He said, " What better day than the Mayday bank holiday to launch ourSeaside Manifesto - it is Britain's great seaside towns where so manyfamilies want to spend their bank holiday weekends. We are seeingnothing less than a renaissance in our coastal towns."

But there is still more to do to ensure Britain's seaside townscelebrate their unique assets and maximise their potential as holidaydestinations. I

am delighted that Duncan Bannatyne has agreed to lead areview on this, working with seaside towns up and down the country tofulfil their own aspirations." With the right support of an active government, places like Ipswichand Great Yarmouth, which I am visitingtoday, can be a new riviera on the North Sea and all our coastal townscan go from strength to strength.

"Mr Bannatyne said, " I'm delighted to be here with Gordon Brown and totake on the job of helping Britain's seaside towns. Our coastal townshave huge potential and I look forward to helping them achieve it with aLabour Government committed to regeneration and helping communities."
