HC Deb 27 October 1965 vol 718 c69W
Wing Commander Sir E. Bullus

asked the Minister of Aviation what support he is giving to the Air Transport Licensing Board in its efforts to protect package tour holidaymakers against unscrupulous travel firms.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The Air Transport Licensing Board is responsible for licensing the airlines, not the travel agents, but it is nevertheless with my full encouragement doing what it can to ensure the good standing of the tour organisers. My own Department, which controls permits to foreign air transport operators in this field, applies as far as possible the same standards as does the Board.
