UPDATE: As of Monday morning we received an email from Mr. Tom Heideman at the U.K. Office of Fair Trade. As a result of all the last minute comments his office has already received from many hostels (mostly in Europe in the UK) they have extended the comment period to end of business this Friday June 21st. He has also asked me to solicit additional input from hostels. He asked that hostel owners email him directly at Tom[dot]Heideman[at]oft[dot]gsi[dot]gov[dot]uk . He also asked that his colleagues (Chris Whitcombe & Rudi Dedushaj) be copied on any emails sent to him. Their emails are Chris[dot]Whitcombe[at]oft[dot]gsi[dot]gov[dot]uk, and Rudi[dot]Dedushaj[at]oft[dot]gsi[dot]gov[dot]uk . (If you need help translating these anti-spammed email addresses please email us).
Since this merger will affect nearly all hostels around the world, it's very important that Tom, Chris and Rudi here about us on this. When writing your email, please try to address the items listed in the Office of Fair Trade questionnaire that Rucksack Brian previously attached to this discussion.
