BRIGHTON, England (Reuters) - British security minister Brandon Lewis said he hoped talks about the future of travel company Thomas Cook TCG.L come to a positive conclusion on Sunday.

The world’s oldest travel company is fighting for its survival over the weekend after lenders threatened to pull the plug on a rescue deal that has been months in the making.

“I hope that they come to a positive conclusion,” Lewis told Sky News, when asked about the discussions. He declined to comment further on what steps the government was prepared to take.
