This week, I wrote to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, to ask if he will meet ABTA to discuss (a) the travel and tourism sector’s financial situation and (b) potential financial support for those sectors.
The reply from The Exchequer Secretary came as follows.
The Chancellor regularly meets with industry, including the travel and tourism sector, to discuss a range of matters.
Senior officials are due to meet with ABTA and have also held discussions with a number of representatives from the travel and tourism sector, including with representatives from UK airlines and with the Chief Executive of the Business Travel Association.
