I thank Mr Storey for the question.  The Northern Regional College has already been proactive in the area.  No doubt it will take from his comments the need to go even further in that regard.

It is very much a demand-led programme.  We will respond to the demand that comes from the sector.  Last year, we had the very good news that WorldHost was used around the Irish Open on the north coast.  It helped to make that a very good event, and it encouraged more people to visit Northern Ireland.  There may well be more that can be done, particularly on the north coast, to further capitalise on the good work that is happening.
