Question to the Department for Transport

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the remarks by Lord Callanan on 25 October (HL Deb, cols 946–7), whether the internal review being carried out in response to the insolvency of Monarch Airlines will be fed into their wider review and consultation on consumer protection in the aviation industry; and whether the conclusions and proposals of the internal review will be published.

Answer (Baroness Sugg)

We are reviewing consumer protection in the aviation sector as a whole through our aviation strategy. As Lord Callanan indicated in in the ATOL Bill debate of 25 October, we will take on board the lessons learned from Monarch and intend to explore these further in the forthcoming Green Paper on consumer protection to be issued as part of our aviation strategy.
