FIRST Minister Mark Drakeford said Wales’ potential reopening of the tourism industry around Easter would include bed & breakfasts and hotels with room service as long as the accommodation is self-contained.

Mr Drakeford 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. That’s the test, that you have to have facilities that are not shared with other people. Provided that is the case, then that is what we will be talking about.

“But Easter is a long way off, and these are very preliminary discussions in the hope of, providing things continue to improve, we’d be in a position to begin the first steps of reopening that industry.”
