Wales will consider allowing its tourism industry to partially reopen in time for Easter if the country’s coronavirus situation continues to improve.

The country’s First Minister Mark Drakeford has said that self-contained accommodation including hotels and bed & breakfasts with room service, as well as caravans and lodges, will be considered for reopening following the next review of restrictions.

Ministers would use the same definitions for “self-contained accommodation” as when tourism returned following the first lockdown, which Mr Drakeford said the industry “made a real success of”.

He told the PA news agency: “We will use the same definition as we did last year.We reopened the tourism economy starting with self-contained accommodation last year, and I think the industry made a real success of that.It did include, for example, hotels where people can be entirely self-contained.”
