HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c233W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Minister for Trade what information he has as to the amounts owing to people holding scheduled flight tickets sold by the Laker Group; and whether any of the amounts owing have been repaid by Mr. Rowland of Lonrho Ltd.

Mr. Sproat

I am informed by the receivers that just under 17,000 people held scheduled tickets on Skytrain with a total value estimated at £3.85 million. Some of them were able to use their return coupons with other airlines. How many remain with unused coupons is not yet known. I have no information on Mr. Rowland's plans to repay ticket-holders.
