Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Potential impact of leaving the EU on consumer protection under the ATOL scheme (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: I did not complain that the process was taking too long; I simply made the point that time in this House is incredibly important. An awful lot of things that were discussed during the proceedings on the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill could have made this legislation, but time has been wasted. These matters took 45 minutes in Committee. That was my point.

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Potential impact of leaving the EU on consumer protection under the ATOL scheme (11 Jul 2017)
