Transport: Fire and Rehire (16 May 2024)

Sam Tarry: The TUC has found that since 2020 about 10% of all workers have had to reapply for their job. And let us remember that in 2020 British Airways tried to sack 36,000 staff through fire and rehire, which was stopped only through strike action—the Government took no action. In 2021, Go North West in Manchester threatened the same and, again, industrial action stopped it happening—the...

Terms and Conditions of Employment (14 May 2024)

Chris Stephens: ...), who has had to go to a Committee, has tabled two private Member’s Bills that seek to outlaw fire and rehire practices. The Bills are supported by over 100 MPs and the trade unions Unite, the British Airline Pilots’ Association and GMB. I listened carefully to the Minister’s exchanges with my hon. Friend and the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine), and my...

Transport System: Failings - Motion to Take Note (25 Apr 2024)

Lord Campbell-Savours: ...return, will pay—listen—£538. I ask colleagues to compare that with the return fare from London to Beijing, in the People’s Republic of China, which is available today on the internet from British Airways at £382. Similar ticket prices were available from China Airlines and Lufthansa. So it costs the same to travel standard class—second class in the old days—from London to...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Apr 2024)

Andrew Bridgen: .... Those who imposed these vaccines knew full well that they could never prevent infection from a disease of this kind. An injection in the arm cannot do that. Only immunity on the surface of the airways and the lungs can prevent viral infection; antibodies in the blood cannot. In Dr Anthony Fauci’s words, “it is not surprising that none of the predominantly mucosal respiratory viruses...

NHS: Long-term Sustainability - Motion to Take Note (18 Apr 2024)

Lord Mawson: ...among others. However, they are not in general supported and encouraged, and thus the approach does not become established more broadly. As has recently been observed, the NHS has more pilots than British Airways—why not get behind these good people, long-term, and build a culture based on innovation, integration and entrepreneurship. My question to the Minister, and to the Opposition if...

Code of Practice on Dismissal and Re-Engagement - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (25 Mar 2024)

Lord Woodley: ...grasped. The Minister responded to my question at Second Reading about whether the code would have prevented some of the most notorious examples of fire and rehire. I raise the bitter disputes at British Airways and British Gas, and now at Heathrow Airport, where Border Force staff just last week voted 90% in favour of strike action over enforced roster changes that would mean,...

Employment and Trade Union Rights (Dismissal and Re-engagement) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 1 Mar 2024)

Baroness O'Grady of Upper Holloway: ...back-street sweatshops, or a few struggling employers who have fallen on hard times. The roll of shame includes big names in the mainstream, which have absolutely no excuse—the likes of Tesco, British Gas and British Airways. In many cases, unions have fought back and won, but no working family in Britain should be put through the worry, hardship and humiliation of being treated as...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (14 Feb 2024)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...death or to get here somehow. They chose to get here somehow; they had no alternative. There was no legal route open to them. That is the dilemma. It is not that they chose not to “hop on” a British Airways flight and come here, showing their status to allow them to do it. It was taken from them wrongly and they were left in this situation. They had the choice of waiting for their...

International Human Rights Abuses: UK Response — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (24 Jan 2024)

John Martin McDonnell: ...for quite a while now. They are members of the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, with whom we have worked over the years in different disputes. The first is the chair, Carol Ng Man-yee, a British Airways cabin crew worker we worked with in major disputes out there who founded the British Airways Hong Kong cabin crew union; the other is Lee Cheuk-yan, the general secretary of the...

Economic Growth (14 Nov 2023)

Henry Smith: ...partnership, which truly is a demonstration of global Britain and global reach post Brexit. We are an island trading nation, and that is why economic growth has to be supported by a thriving British aviation sector. It has suffered hugely as a result of the pandemic but is coming back extremely strongly. I am delighted that later this month, Virgin Atlantic Airways, which is headquartered...

Flying Schools: Liquidation - Question (13 Nov 2023)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...have had a number of conversations with airlines around the need for skills, including new pilots. The airlines do not currently see a pressing pilot shortage; however, I am very pleased that both British Airways and TUI now have cadetship programmes in place. That is great for supporting new trainees, but also really good for increasing diversity.

1. Questions to the First Minister: Support for Cancer Patients ( 3 Oct 2023)

Mark Drakeford: ..., because it was only in June 2022 that the health board were approached by Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council with the idea of purchasing the building—the building previously used by British Airways—and purchase of the site occurred in early 2023. The current occupants of the site are due to vacate it about now, and that means that early work will be possible on a temporary...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: The Devolution Settlement (13 Sep 2023)

Mick Antoniw: ...of constitutional relations. None of this is really mentioned in the UK Government's report on inter-governmental relations. Their annual report is a bit like a brochure inviting you to join the British Airways executive lounge. In fact, it says at the end, on legislative consent mechanisms, 'a total of 18 legislative consent motions...across 13 pieces of legislation, were passed by the...

Treasury: Topical Questions ( 5 Sep 2023)

Barry Sheerman: Sorry I was late today, Mr Speaker: British Airways cancelled my flight. When the Chancellor’s predecessor, now the Prime Minister, was Chancellor there was huge fraud in the bounce back loans. Has he got any of that money back yet?

Transport: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2023)

Gavin Newlands: Scots are used to getting a poor and unreliable cross-border rail service, but recently the cross-border air service provided by British Airways, particularly from Glasgow, has been awful. That said, we need to get on with decarbonising aviation, so when will we see the airspace modernisation process simplified and accelerated, not decelerated? When will the Government bring forward price...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

John Martin McDonnell: ...for sanctions against the Chinese Government for the barbaric treatment of the Uyghurs, and also because they have imprisoned a group of my Unite trade union friends who worked with me on the British Airways campaigns. All they were demanding was adherence to democracy by the Chinese, and they have been inside for two and a half years, without any form of access to their families in many...

NHS: Performance and Innovation - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2023)

Lord Markham: ...on, as I will come on to, but the problem is often not the original innovation or idea but its widespread adoption. I am sure we have all heard the joke that the health service has more pilots than British Airways, but how do we seek to roll things out? First, we are backing small companies. Secondly, dare I say it, I am going to mention the app, in that we have a £32 million platform, as...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Electric Vehicles (14 Jun 2023)

Jim Shannon: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether his Department has had discussions with (a) British Airways and (b) other airlines on the potential for electric aviation.

7. Statement by the Minister for Economy: Tech and Cyber Sectors ( 6 Jun 2023)

Natasha Asghar: ...this plan? The cyber action plan for Wales will, and I quote, 'help people, businesses and public services reduce the risks of cyber-attacks'. As I'm sure you'll be aware, Minister, the BBC, British Airways and Boots, amongst other companies, were this week caught up in a cyber incident, exposing thousands of employees' personal data to hackers. This incident alone should highlight the...

Heathrow Airport Expansion (24 May 2023)

Gavin Newlands: ...used to transform and turbo-boost connectivity to other parts of these isles, particularly in the light of the utter shambles of HS2. At the moment, Loganair is forced to lease Heathrow slots from British Airways to provide connectivity with Scotland, rather than being able to access Heathrow on its own terms and in its own right. The two Members representing Dundee, my right hon. Friend...
