The article reports that Queensland travel agency licensees are being hit with another licensing red tape, which they claim as a "tax grab" by the government. According to the author, the Office of Fair Trading will ask from agents an extra payment of $35.50 on their annual license renewal statement for a compulsory criminal history check. Amid comments, a Minister or Fair Trading spokesman said that it is part of agents' license fees and it is going to improve the industry.
