We will also continue to support the implementation of Paris Protocol measures in relation to the transfer of taxes and fees Israel collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA), and any measures agreed by the parties to transfer the responsibility of revenue collection. Our support in these areas will help thousands of Palestinians in their daily lives, support the financial sustainability of the PA and contribute to preserving the viability of the two-state solution.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Franchise Agreement specifies that certain situations, which can include health and safety incidents, can be exempted from financial penalties, although this is not automatic. If a relevant authority (such as the ORR) issues a safety restriction for a specific period of time, a temporary revised performance plan may be agreed and put in place. In all cases, Franchisees are expected to implement mitigations to minimise the incident’s impact on passengers.</p><p> </p> more like this
