Sir Freddie said he had reached an agreement with the hoteliers, who had lifted a threat to ban his firm. The hoteliers had demanded immediate payment of part of the £500,000 owed by Sir Freddie's old firm. Sir Freddie promised that contracts already signed with holiday hotels would be honoured. He said he refused to pay the debt because he did not have the money.
