Finance Bill: New Clause 19 - Taxation of coronavirus support payments ( 2 Jul 2020)

Claudia Webbe: ...may not discriminate, but our economic and social system certainly does. Children from African, Asian and minority ethnic families are nearly twice as likely to be in poverty than children in white British families. Leicester East is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse places in the UK and has high levels of both child poverty and in-work poverty—we suffer from a perfect...

Business of the House ( 2 Jul 2020)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ..., I would reiterate the points I have made about the support that the Government have provided for all industries. My hon. Friend is not alone in having constituents who have been poorly treated by British Airways; I have one myself. Treating people who have worked for a firm for very long time unfairly is not a way that reputable companies should behave, and bringing this to the attention...

Transport: Covid-19: Economic Recovery ( 2 Jul 2020)

Allan Dorans: The Secretary of State will be aware that British Airways continues along its Dickensian path of threatening to fire staff and rehire them on substantially poorer pay and conditions, which affects many of my constituents in Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock. Does he accept that the conduct of British Airways executives such as Willie Walsh is bringing the industry into disrepute at a time when...

Transport: Aviation Sector: Worker Protection ( 2 Jul 2020)

Barbara Keeley: British Airways is proposing to lay off 12,000 staff and is using this pandemic as cover to put its remaining 30,000 staff on inferior contracts. Using a global health crisis to force through such changes is a national disgrace, yet British Airways still enjoys preferential treatment as our flag carrier, with a dominant position on slots at Heathrow. If it fails to treat its staff properly,...

Transport: Topical Questions ( 2 Jul 2020)

Mike Kane: British, British, British Airways, easyJet, Airbus and Jet2—every day we get more news of staggering job losses across the aviation industry. Our world-class airports and their supply chains are at critical. The US, Spain, Germany and France have all agreed specific aviation deals so that their countries bounce back more strongly. If not now, when will the Government implement a...

Finance Bill: New Clause 26 - Review of impact of Act on job creation ( 1 Jul 2020)

Rupa Huq: ...creation, I want to flag, as my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Wavertree pointed out, that the global pandemic we are in seems to be a bit of a cover for certain companies to behave badly. British Airways and Virgin spring to mind as using the coronavirus job retention scheme—the clue is in the name—to do the very opposite. Having accepted furlough funds from the public purse,...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 Jul 2020)

Stephen Doughty: The Prime Minister does not want to talk about the numbers of job losses, so let me give him some: British Airways, 12,000 jobs potentially to go, including in the Vale of Glamorgan, in Llantrisant and in Blackwood; GE, 1,400 jobs potentially to go at Nantgarw; Rolls-Royce, nearly 6,000 to go in Derby, Solihull, Glasgow, Rotherham; and, as my right hon. and learned Friend the Leader of the...

Pension Schemes Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 34 (30 Jun 2020)

Lord Balfe: ...that will be laid on them by this legislation, and asks the Minister to have their situation firmly in mind when making the regulations. We often think of pension schemes as huge things, like the British Airways or Lloyds Bank schemes, but the great majority of schemes in this country are quite small. My amendment sets the quite arbitrary figure of £500 million in assets under management,...

Covid-19: Airline Sector - Question (29 Jun 2020)

Lord Caine: My Lords, with the aviation industry not expecting demand to rise to pre-lockdown levels until 2023-24, and companies such as British Airways currently haemorrhaging nearly £30 million a day, does my noble friend agree that what the sector now needs above all is certainty? Does she accept that, while the proposed air bridges are welcome, each day’s delay in introducing them means...

Work and Pensions: Supporting Employment After Covid-19 (29 Jun 2020)

Huw Merriman: Many of us are concerned about jobs in the aviation sector, particularly British Airways, which is not only making up to 12,500 redundancies but firing and rehiring virtually the remainder of the workforce, despite its group putting €1 billion into a new airline and BA staff putting 66% of profits into that group. What can the Government do to ensure that our employers do the right thing by...

Covid-19: Support for UK Industries (25 Jun 2020)

Rushanara Ali: ...pandemic. We are braced for the worst economic downturn for many decades, if not centuries. Many thousands of jobs are at risk of being lost or are likely to be lost, including at Centrica, Nissan, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. We are talking about plans to cut some 12,000 jobs. At Rolls-Royce and many other companies all over the country, many of our constituents will be affected....

Covid-19 Update (23 Jun 2020)

Ronnie Cowan: ..., the job retention scheme is being abused by some companies to make employees redundant before August, when employers would have to pay a percentage of their salary. Moreover, others, like British Airways, are threatening to fire tens of thousands of loyal workers and rehire them, some on slashed pay and poorer conditions. The Prime Minister said that he was looking at what we can do, so...

Civil Aviation (Insurance) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (18 Jun 2020)

Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale: ...the conduct particularly of airlines—but also airports in this country and beyond—is absolutely appalling at times. There have been comments this week in the other place about the way in which British Airways has been treating its staff over recent weeks. It has been treating its customers in that way for a very long time, and it has been at it again during this pandemic. It is not...

Business of the House (18 Jun 2020)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising an important question. Many of us represent constituents who have worked for British Airways and given long service over many years, and there are concerns about the way that they have been treated. This matter has quite rightly been brought before the House under an urgent question, and I think could be debated next week in the Petitions Committee...

Petition - Protection of workers in the airline industry (16 Jun 2020)

Gavin Newlands: .... This Government have a funny way of showing support. On Sunday a Home Office source said: “It is no surprise that the airline industry are focusing on their bottom line over public safety. The British public already have a dim view of the aviation sector but putting profit over people's lives is a new low even for them.” I think it is safe to say that the aviation sector is not...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (16 Jun 2020)

Lord Hendy: ...We have already seen this in companies that are not insolvent: pay cuts of 10% at the Daily Mirror; of 20% at BAM Construct; of 20% at Ryanair, with a loss of possibly 3,000 jobs; and up to 60% at British Airways, with 12,000 jobs to go. There can be no doubt that the opportunities offered by the Bill, though generally welcome, will be utilised, as in Chapter 11 proceedings in the USA, to...

Economic Outlook and Furlough Scheme Changes (16 Jun 2020)

Chris Elmore: ...life and legacy that we all work towards every day. May I press the Minister, in that vein, for support for the aviation sector? There will be a £1.6 billion impact on the south Wales economy if British Airways is to keep on cutting jobs across three sites in the region. The Chancellor and the Minister say they will do whatever it takes, so please Minister, for these highly skilled,...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (16 Jun 2020)

Ruth Cadbury: I also concur with the remarks made about my friend and colleague Jo Cox. We remember her today and what she stood for. As a member of the Transport Committee, I stand by our description of British Airways as a “national disgrace” for the way it has effectively fired most of its staff and will rehire some of them on vastly cut pay and conditions. BA has done that under the cloak of the...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: British Airways: Redundancy (16 Jun 2020)

Harriet Harman: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps he plans to take to support British Airways employees that are at risk of redundancy; and what the timeframe is for the provision of that support.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: British Airways: Coronavirus (15 Jun 2020)

Claire Hanna: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will make an assessment of the implications for his policy on the regulation of slot allocation at Heathrow airport of BA's proposals on making its pilots redundant and rehiring them on different terms as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.
