Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Civil Aviation (19 Oct 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: The nine freedoms of the air guaranteed under the European common aviation area have enabled the growth of low-cost air travel, with average leisure fares to Europe falling by a third since 1993.

Monarch Airlines (9 Oct 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: In 2014, the CAA recognised the fragility of Monarch’s finances and insisted on ATOL protection of flight-only bookings, but that requirement was dropped in December 2016. Monarch’s administrators cite cost pressures and increasingly competitive market conditions as contributing to its collapse. Given that the fall in the value of the pound and the loss of tourism in Egypt and...

Lilian Greenwood: The all-party parliamentary group on deafness recently heard compelling evidence about the disproportionate and damaging impact the cap on awards under the Access to Work scheme is having on people who use British sign language as their first language, with deaf people having job offers withdrawn, withdrawing from their roles and giving up on their careers. The Government say they are...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: We already know that 75% of students will not pay back their loans, or will not be able to do so. How can the Secretary of State say that the system is sustainable?

HS2 Update (17 Jul 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: I welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement today. Certainty about the route and the timetable for progressing the project is essential if businesses are to have the confidence to invest and create jobs in the region served by HS2.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Grenfell Tower Fire: Advice to Landlords (17 Jul 2017)

Lilian Greenwood: I am concerned that a survey of social landlords carried out by HouseMark has found that they had little confidence that they would be able to take enforcement action under the Housing Act 2004 to ensure that leaseholders complied with fire safety regulations, including through fitting fire doors, which is obviously essential, given what the Secretary of State has just said about keeping all...
