Families could see a drop in the price of holidays as schools are given more control on setting half-term dates, the consumer affairs minister says.
Jenny Willott insisted the coalition has no plans to regulate as it is not convinced higher prices during school holidays are caused by "market abuse" by the holiday industry, but instead reflect the demand in an international competitive sector.
But Ms Willott said proposals to enable schools greater choice on when to set holidays by next year could result in different break times for pupils across the country, which would extend the peak holiday period and could help bring prices down.
