Employment Agencies and Trade Unions (11 Jul 2022)

Craig Mackinlay: .... We must guard against a wage-price spiral. I support these regulations, because it is not unreasonable for people to be able to get to work. The other industry that was going down this route was British Airways. BA workers have come to a settlement, which is very good. If BA had effectively closed down over this holiday period, what would that have meant for the employment of London?...

Airports: Delays - Question (30 Jun 2022)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: My Lords, is it not time that the Government took some action on behalf of the airline passengers? If we take the levelling-up strategy, for example, how can it be right that British Airways charges more than £500 for an economy return fare from Glasgow or Edinburgh if it is booked a week in advance? The travelling public are treated very badly by the airlines. In the past, my noble friend...

Justin Madders: ...much more now? Sadly, in the last few years we have seen a proliferation of companies, including many household names, adopting fire and rehire tactics as a first port of call rather than the last.

Viscount Stansgate: seeing large numbers of automatic entry gates seemingly shut because of a lack of staff.

Friend the...

Transport (19 May 2022)

Ian Paisley Jnr: ...of hon. Members have mentioned the interim price cap, which is disastrous for connectivity to Northern Ireland.
