HC Deb 07 February 1975 vol 885 c672W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he can now state when it is intended to introduce the promised legislation to give better protection to the public in respect of foreign holiday bookings; and whether it is his intention that the provisions should come into force well before the peak of the forthcoming summer holiday period.

Mr. Deakins

The Air Travel Reserve Fund Bill was published yesterday. The Bill provides for the fund to be used to make payments to customers of air travel organisers in respect of losses or liabilities incurred in connection with an overseas air travel contract to be performed after 1st April 1974.
