Andrew Rosindell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what percentage of gross domestic product was accounted for by tourism in (a) Wales and (b) the rest of the United Kingdom in the last year for which figures are available. 
Mr. Woodward: Industry-specific data are only available for Gross Value Added (GVA), not Gross Domestic Product.
In direct terms, tourism contributes approximately 3.7 per cent. of whole-economy value added in Wales. For the UK in total, tourism contributed an estimated 3.4 per cent. of GVA in 2003 (it is not possible to provide a figure for the UK excluding Wales).
These figures were both calculated using tourism satellite account methodology but were derived separately and so are not directly comparable.
Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport which 10 tourist attractions in (a) Cambridgeshire, (b) Peterborough constituency and (c) Peterborough city council area attracted the largest number of visitors in each year since 1997. 
Mr. Woodward: My Department does not maintain central records of visitors to tourist attractions. However VisitBritain and its predecessor have previously carried out periodical surveys of regional attractions. The data available from the surveys covering Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and the estimated visitor numbers for the most popular attractions in these areas is set out in the following tables.
