Air Travel Organisers' Licensing Bill — Clause 1 — Air Travel Organisers' Licences — Review Impact of Changes — 11 Jul 2017 at 17:15
The majority of MPs voted against a review of changes to the air travel organisers’ licence (ATOL) to determine any adverse impact on UK consumers using EU based companies.
MPs were considering the Air Travel Organisers' Licensing Bill.
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- 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.”
The rejected amendment was accompanied by the following explanatory note:
- This amendment requires the Government to review the impact of provisions under this section to ensure that they are not adversely affecting UK consumers using EU-based companies.
- 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 and protect more consumers. UK travel companies, we are told, will be able to sell more seamlessly across Europe, as they will need to comply with protections based not in the country of sale, but the country in which they are established.
