Safety review

Coroner calls for safety review of gap year adventures, BBC News 3 Apr 11.

‘John Pollard wants a review of health and safety procedures at gap year companies.’ A coroner has asked the government to review international adventure holiday companies' safety procedures. It follows the death of a 17-year-old student from Manchester, Luke Molnar, on a conservation trip to Fiji. There are now concerns that new regulations, designed to set minimum requirements and safeguard travellers, are in fact toothless. A government spokeswoman said a minister would respond to the coroner's concerns in due course. Now Mr Pollard has written to the business secretary, Vince Cable, asking him to review the regulation of companies offering overseas adventure travel. Mr Cable has to reply within 56 days to explain what action he intends to take.
