HC Deb 22 July 1970 vol 804 cc118-9W
57. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many passengers were killed on British airlines in each year since 1960; how many of the deaths occurred on scheduled flights of British European Airways and the British Overseas Airways Corporation and how many on private chartered flights; and how these figures compare with the total numbers of passengers carried in each category.

Mr. Corfield

As the answer contains a number of figures, I will, with permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the information:

holidaymakers and tourists in Great Britain and overseas.

Mr. Corfield

No. I believe the Act already provides adequately against deliberately or recklessly false statements about holiday services, accommodation and facilities.

Mr. Milne

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will have discussions at an early date with the Association of British Travel Agents and other bodies interested in tourism and travel, with a view to introducing further legislation for the protection of holidaymakers.

Mr. Corfield

This is one of the matters I am considering in the light of the recommendations of the Edwards Committee of Inquiry into Civil Air Transport.
