ABSTRACT
The article reports that conservative member of parliament (MP) Nigel Evans has tabled an early day motion congratulating the travel companies who are members of Prevention of Fraud in Travel (PROFiT), including the Travel Trust Association, the Global Travel Group and Hays Travel. An EDM is a formal motion submitted for debate in the House of Commons. However, few EDMs are actually debated but are used to publicize the views of individual MPs, drawing attention to specific events or campaigns.
