I have tried to be as clear as I can about Thomas Cook workers abroad. I have asked the CAA to work on the matter urgently. Obviously the first priority is getting 150,000 people home.

As regards pay, that is very tightly set out under legislation in an insolvency situation, and that is exactly what will be followed.
