Overseas Territories (11 May 2023)

David Jones: ...need to consider carefully. It is clearly the case that many Gibraltarians now—particularly younger ones—regard a trip to the United Kingdom essentially as a bus trip; they use the easyJet and British Airways services quite routinely. They regard themselves already as de facto integrated with the United Kingdom, so the constitutional status of the overseas territories in that regard...

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill - Report: Amendment 4 (26 Apr 2023)

Lord Balfe: ...amendment really shows what a ludicrous Bill this is. The clause that we are dealing with is unworkable. As noble Lords know, I have to declare an interest as an executive honorary president of the British Airline Pilots’ Association. I have talked in this House before about the fact that this Bill allows the Minister for Transport, our good and noble friend Lady Vere, to identify a...

5. Statement by the Minister for Health and Social Services: The National Diagnostic Strategy (25 Apr 2023)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: ...out how we will create additional capacity, move to a combined approach for diagnostic tests, and provides leadership through a national diagnostics programme. The recent purchase of the former British Airways buildings in Llantrisant, close to the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, will enable the Cwm Taf Morgannwg health board to develop a regional service for the south-east to deliver...

P&O Ferries Redundancies (28 Mar 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: We are totally on the same page. The fire element is the worry here. Setting aside the consultation requirements, hon. Members will remember the case of British Airways, which threatened fire and rehire during the pandemic. It did not go ahead with that tactic, as P&O did, but consulted the workforce and found a way through. That shows why the consultation period is so important. Making sure...

Northern Ireland and Great Britain: Regional Connectivity - Question (13 Mar 2023)

Baroness O'Loan: Is the Minister aware that Aer Lingus has pulled out of the Belfast-London route and that there are regular cancellations by British Airways, particularly of the early flights on Monday morning? The reduction in the number of flights from Belfast to London and back is a significant problem.

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (21 Feb 2023)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...or where we are today. My noble friend Lord Liddle was right: things have moved on. A lot of that legislation which imposed ballots has resulted in much stronger and more effective mandates. When British Airways are threatened with a massive mandate for industrial action, it cannot wait for that strike to take place. The cost to them has already hit because people cancel their bookings....

Joel James: ...Coleg y Cymoedd, has been awarded the student of the year and best work awards, as well as apprentice of the year at the Caerphilly Business Forum Awards.

Seafarers’ Wages Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 - General interpretation ( 7 Feb 2023)

Gavin Newlands: a jail cell, as far as I am concerned. It is disappointing that the Minister could not accept new clause 4. The one small silver lining is that P&O Ferries’ actions, after a summer that saw British Airways, British Gas et al. treat their workers with utter contempt through fire and rehire threats, finally moved the needle enough to force this Government to act to protect workers...

Public Bill Committee: Procurement Bill [Lords]: Clause 6 - Utilities Contracts (31 Jan 2023)

Florence Eshalomi: ...using the cover of the pandemic to fire their staff, make drastic changes to their work conditions and try to re-employ them on lower wages and weaker conditions. In organisations such as British Gas/Centrica and British Airways, dedicated levels of service from staff were thrown out of the window, yet those companies continue to receive big payouts for their shareholders and CEOs. We need...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 8 - Disqualification for persistent breaches of companies legislation: GB (24 Jan 2023)

Gavin Newlands: ...seen a number of cases, the most high profile being P&O, in relation to which Mr Hebblethwaite told a joint sitting of Select Committees of this House that he broke the law and would do it again. British Airways breached its duties as employers and breached employment law—its chief executive happily admitted to breaking the law. Such blatant and open law breaking cannot be rewarded with...

Public Bill Committee: Seafarers’ Wages Bill [Lords]: New Clause 5 - Implementation and monitoring (17 Jan 2023)

Gavin Newlands: further. Members may remember that I have certainly highlighted and challenged companies that have used fire and rehire over recent years since its first big deployment in this country by British Airways. Many Opposition Members have repeatedly asked the Government to bring in legislation to end it, as is the case in most of Europe, with some of us introducing multiple Bills to that...

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill (16 Jan 2023)

Clive Lewis: ...companies such as Palantir, and fighting for our education system, which 44% of teachers plan to leave within five years. The Government, however, are on the side of employers such as P&O, British Gas and British Airways, with a Bill that gives a green light to the practitioners of fire and rehire, poverty pay and a race to the bottom. And yes, as ever, the Government are on the side of...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Air Routes: Belfast (16 Jan 2023)

Jesse Norman: British Airways, Aer Lingus’s IAG partner, has picked up the services previously operated by Aer Lingus between Belfast and London, meaning that there has been no reduction in capacity on the route. Air connectivity between Northern Ireland (NI) and Great Britain (GB) is currently very strong with several competing services between Belfast and London, and routes from NI to several cities...

Seafarers’ Wages Bill [Lords] (19 Dec 2022)

Gavin Newlands: and rehire, which has seen hundreds of thousands of workers faced with the threat of redundancy or a lower wage. I am sure that workers who were forced out or who are on inferior contracts at British Airways, British Gas, Go North West, Tesco and Menzies Aviation, to name but a few, will be pleased that the Government are trying to do something, but they will look at these plans and...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Department for Work and Pensions: Electronic Purchasing Card Solution (19 Dec 2022)

Emily Thornberry: ...Work and Pensions, pursuant to his Department’s publication of government procurement card spending over £500 for August 2021, for what purpose two payments totalling £11,987.74 were made to British Airways on 6 August 2021.

BBC Local Radio ( 8 Dec 2022)

Rachael Maskell: ...and who served us so well over that time. Now they are worried about their future and about having their professionalism undermined, at a time when their advice is needed to shape the future of British broadcasting. The BBC faces challenges: local radio and local BBC have been massively cut already. Instead of managing that decline, which is what is happening, the BBC should grasp the...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 70 - Bar on directors in breach of duties receiving public funds (29 Nov 2022)

Gavin Newlands: ...of the nuclear option of being barred from acting as a director. We have seen a number of cases over recent years of multinational companies, such as P&O Ferries and, not quite to the same extent, British Airways, breaching their duties as employers and breaching employment law. Indeed, the chief executive of the former happily admitted breaking the law while appearing before the Transport...

Migration (16 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Edwards: Diolch, Mr Speaker. Will the Minister inform the House whether the British Government have found an airline willing to facilitate their Rwanda policy? Privilege Style has joined Titan Airways and AirTanker in stating that it will not participate in deportation flights. Is it not the reality that commercial operators are turning their back on the Government’s immoral policy?
