Alert me about debates like this

Andrew Harrison: I have got two lines on that, if I am honest. We are happy to see ATOL reform included in the Bill to help protect passengers, but it is something that airlines rather than airports are involved in. The situations that we see in the press, where an airline or a tour operator goes bust and people are stranded overseas, do not do anybody any good—they are bad not only for airports, but for the whole industry. Although we are not directly involved in ATOL reform, we would applaud it.
