Members to visit local B&Bs between 16 and 22 March 2020 during National B&B week; and calls on the Government to promote Britain's brilliant B&Bs, guest houses and family-run hotels as a central part of its UK tourism strategy, to win export earnings through the provision of those tourism services and to help improve economic equity throughout the UK's regions, coastal and rural areas.
