agency.



AS Biss will lobby the Government on issues including air passenger duty

- set at pounds 10 per European flight journey and pounds 20 for each

flight leg outside Europe, which Lunn Poly is keen to see lowered. Lunn

Poly is also pushing to preserve the high street against encroachment

from out-of-town shopping malls.



Sally Carroll, Lunn Poly’s head of communications, said: ’Lunn Poly is

committed to playing a greater role in the public affairs arena. We have

a valuable contribution to make on policy issues such as consumer

protection, tourism and the environment, training, integrated transport

and the future of the high street.’



AS Biss worked for Lunn Poly last year on the Fair Travel Tax Campaign

which succeeded in equalising insurance tax for travel agents with

insurance tax paid by direct insurers in this year’s Budget.
