§ Mr. Brooks
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has now reached a decision on the test case appeals affecting inclusive tour prices during the coming summer.
§ Mr. Crosland
I have decided to allow these appeals in the terms of the original applications in order to avoid any requirement on tour organisers to increase the prices at which they have advertised and sold tours. The new minimum prices will be made available for scheduled as well as for charter services. I am satisfied that these changes are unlikely to damage the scheduled services and may well be of benefit to them. I have also decided to allow in the same way a separate appeal relating to inclusive tour prices for Bulgaria and Rumania.
