asked the Secretary of State for Trade what are the respective estimated amounts of compensation liable to be paid to customers of the eight air travel organisers named in Written Answers to the hon. Member for Rom-ford on 11th March as coming within the scope of Section 2(4)(b) and (5) of the Air Travel Reserve Fund Bill.
