The debate over the legitimacy of parents taking their children out of school during the school term continues, with a recent petition requesting a cap to the seasonal percentage increases charged by holiday providers gaining well over 100,000 signatories, and being raised in parliament. The official response to the petition was that ' a competitive market it is for business to decide the market worth of their products and to price accordingly.'
