The article reports that despite ABTA Ltd.'s terminating the membership of Harvey World Travel, its 60 shops are continuing to trade as normal. Stuart Arnott, owner of Harvey World has employed former Lets Go Travel managing director Simon Maunder on a consultancy basis to advise on the business, acquired from Stella Travel Services in March. ABTA terminated the company's membership because it failed to submit its 2007/8 accounts for the year ending June 2008.
