To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has received from (a) independent and (b) non-vertically integrated tour operators on the proposed Thomas Cook MyTravel merger. (128154)

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has not received any representations from tour operators relating to the proposed merger. The regulatory function of investigating mergers is the responsibility of the independent competition authorities.
