The Scottish Tourist Board was criticised by Lord Provost Victor Warren, Glasgow, when he addressed the Scottish division of the British Hotels and Restaurants Association in the North British Hotel, Edinburgh, yesterday. Mr Warren said that when he became Lord Provost of Glasgow he was invited to join the Tourist Board. Before he became Lord Provost he had been a critic of the sums which Glasgow Corporation had given so freely and easily to the Tourist Board. He was still a critic, and would continue to be one, in the matter of spending money on the board while there was little or no representation on it. He resented the suggestion that Glasgow Corporation should be one of he biggest subscribers to the Board and, at the same time, have a very small voice in its affairs. He was far from satisfied with the set-up of the board, on which there seemed to be too much selection and too little election.
