Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (21 Mar 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: .... I am sure the Chancellor, as he reflects on how to make good the deficit that we now have in the Budget, will take on board the suggestion that the right reverend Prelate made about openness and avoiding stealth taxes.
