Where does all this tourism money end up?

MYSELF and my respected right-wing nemesis John Wilkinson have constantly asked this question over the years and to date haven’t had a proper answer.

So, here, before the town is once again constipated with tourists, is the question again.

Out of all the millions Eastbourne supposedly makes from tourism, how much goes into the coffers of the council, County Council or the National Treasury?

I would assume that the way the Tourism Committee goes on about the success of tourism, I should expect my suitcase full of £50 notes any day now. Answers please?
