A travel and tourism supplement to Parliament’s House Magazine has been launched in association with ABTA. In the publication, which serves MPs and Peers, Transport Minister Theresa Villiers, MP John McDonnell, journalist and former MEP Stanley Johnson, MSP Wendy Alexander and MEP Malcolm Harbour will discuss travel matters with additional opinion pieces from travel professor Harold Goodwin and industry leaders Dermot Blastland and Andy Cooper. “We are delighted to publish a supplement bringing together comment on the travel industry,” said The House Magazine Editor Gisela Stuart MP. “In recent months, holidaymakers’ plans have been affected by environmental, industrial relations and taxation and insurance issues. This supplement treats these and other topics, and seeks to start a debate on a co-ordinated response by policymakers in an area that spans a number of government departments.” ABTA Head of Public Affairs Luke Pollard said the first three months of a new government was “critical for any organisation wishing to influence policy”. “New MPs are keen to listen and learn and this supplement is yet another way of making sure travel and tourism’s voice is being heard,” he added.
