Steam Packet findings should be published says watchdog

Wed, 17 Aug 2011

The Island's Travel Watchdog believes the information gathered by the OFT when it was investigating the Steam Packet should be made public.

The Office of Fair Trading began to investigate the price of fares in 2009 but last week it was announced there'll be no report.

It's because of changes that have affected the Steam Packet since the probe began.

TravelWatch has concerns about the cost of travelling on the ferry and was awaiting the findings.

Chairman Brendan O'Friel says he's disappointed and astonished that nothing that nothing will be published.[play media file below]
