HC Deb 17 October 1994 vol 248 c23W
Mr. Orme

To ask the Chairman of the Administration Committee how the acquisition by American Express of the travel management interests of the Thomas Cook Group Ltd. will affect the services provided for the House and hon. Members by the Travel Office.

Mr. Michael J. Martin

I have received firm assurances that the acquisition of Thomas Cook Travel Management by American Express will have no adverse effect on the quality and range of services provided by the Travel Office. The Administration Committee nevertheless intends to monitor closely the performances of the office to ensure that its standards of service are maintained.
