§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Minister for Trade if he plans to legislate so as to require tour operators to include airport taxes in the published prices of inclusive tours; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Vaughan
No. I have asked my officials to undertake a comprehensive review of section 11 of the Trade Descriptions Act and of the bargain offers order and to consider proposals for new legislation. It would not be appropriate to impose new burdens on traders in this field in advance of the results of this review. I have decided therefore not now to proceed with the proposed VAT and ancillary charges order.
