The Secretary of State Was Asked: Airports/Ports: Effect of Leaving EU (13 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: Can the Minister clarify that on leaving the EU we will remain members of the European Aviation Safety Agency, so as to maintain and grow our passenger capacity in accordance with our economic needs?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Airports/Ports: Effect of Leaving EU (13 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: But have we not already seen this Government’s shocking acceptance of departing from EASA safety standards by condoning the wet-leasing of Qatar Airways services to replace the poverty-paid British Airways mixed-fleet crews, in which the substitute crews’ hours will not be subject to the safety standards prescribed by EASA?

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)

Karl Turner: The Labour party supports the Bill, and we will vote in support of it. There are, however, some concerns about the impact of some parts of it, which we expressed when the clauses were first debated as part of the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill and again throughout the passage of this Bill. We hope that the Minister has taken on board the points raised by Labour and echoed by the...

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

Karl Turner: The Minister makes a fair enough point, but with respect, it has been a terrible waste of time debating this matter in the Committee of the whole House when it was previously dealt with in 45 minutes in Committee upstairs. For the sake of appearances, VTAB has been broken up into its component parts and is now being given undue time for debate in this Chamber.

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

Karl Turner: The hon. Lady makes her point on behalf of her constituents, and she makes it well, but I do not think that it requires a response from me.

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

Karl Turner: If the right hon. Gentleman will allow me to continue, I will make the point in a moment that important issues were debated in VTAB that are not now going to be discussed or made into legislation. As a result of breaking up VTAB, measures that were previously included have been dropped, and measures that could have been included to improve this legislation through new clauses and amendments...

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

Karl Turner: New clause 1 seems eminently sensible. These consumer protection measures require an assessment, so we will support the new clause. Question put, That the clause be read a Second time. The House divided: Ayes 273, Noes 308.

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: The Minister is a terribly generous chap, but his attempts to pacify the Opposition with his promise of a letter to ATIPAC simply are not enough. That does not cut the mustard, so we will push the amendment to a vote. Question put, That the amendment be made. The House divided: Ayes 271, Noes 305.

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: We will press amendment 3 to a Division. We seek a commitment that the Minister gave in the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill Committee—that the Government would conduct a thorough impact assessment and consultation before implementing the power. Clause 2 relates to the Air Travel Trust, which is the legal vehicle that holds the money that is then used to refund consumers under ATOL...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: Will the Minister give way?

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: That is the precise reason we need a review.

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: I beg to move amendment 2, in page 1, line 13, at end insert— “(4) The Government must publish a review within one year of this Act receiving Royal Assent on the impact on UK consumers using EU-based companies affected by changes to consumer protection introduced by this section.” This amendment requires the Government to review the impact of provisions...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: The amendment would require the Government to review the impact of clause 1 to ensure that it does not adversely affect UK consumers using EU-based companies. Essentially, the clause updates ATOL—the air travel organisers’ licence—to ensure that it is harmonised with the 2015 EU package travel directive. The provision therefore extends ATOL to cover a wider range of holidays...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: With respect, we do not know that yet, and nor do we know what the insolvency arrangements will be for companies abroad. The Government must address this real issue.

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: I will not give way. We ask the Government to get the ball rolling within a year of the Bill receiving Royal Assent, but a regular review is also needed, particularly in the light of Brexit. Our amendment is supported by the Association of British Travel Agents and other travel organisations. Despite ministerial assurances, we want our amendment to be made to the Bill, so we will press it to...

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: Will the Minister give way?

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Road Infrastructure — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mrs Gillan. I congratulate the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) on securing this important debate on a matter that has broad implications for all our constituents. This debate is particularly timely, because by chance, the Government made an announcement overnight that they will be shifting £1 billion of vehicle...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: This has been an excellent debate, in which we have had 22 Members speak and no less than 13 maiden speeches. There have been too many to mention, but the contributions have been truly excellent, in what has been a non-contentious debate, given that the Opposition agree with the Government’s position. As my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough (Andy McDonald) stated at the outset...
