HL Deb 22 January 2004 vol 657 c150WA
Lord Fearn

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps, if any, are being taken to counteract the compensation culture in the tourism industry and to introduce changes to legislation to reduce or eliminate the opportunity for unreasonable claims. [HL751]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

My right honourable friend the Minister for Sport and Tourism will be meeting representatives of the tourism industry shortly and will consider any evidence they put forward to demonstrate the existence of a "compensation culture" or that unreasonable claims are succeeding.
