5. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Housing and Local Government: Working in Partnership for a Fair Work Wales ( 9 Feb 2021)

Mick Antoniw: ...trade unions still further. So, I very much welcome this very timely statement. Can I also really endorse what you say about the concerns we have about some of those large corporations—British Airways, British Gas—who've sought to use COVID as a cover for undermining ethical standards of employment and workers' rights? Can I also welcome your commitment in respect of the social...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Dismiss and Re-engage Tactics ( 9 Feb 2021)

Navendu Mishra: ...balloting for industrial action against shameful fire and rehire tactics that would see 10% cuts to wages and jobs and sickness protection policies shredded, all in the middle of a pandemic. With British Airways recently forced to back down from similar threats against cargo staff after targeted strikes by Unite the union, does the Minister agree that Government inaction against this...

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [Lords] ( 2 Feb 2021)

Paul Howell: ...be achieved by ensuring that our airport is connected to Heathrow. We have been very pleased to restore flights from Teesside to Heathrow this year. That route closed some 11 years ago, when British Midland took the long-standing Teesside slots to use on other routes. Today, the service is provided by Eastern Airways, although the airport is in the process of finalising arrangements with...

Covid Security at UK Borders ( 1 Feb 2021)

Julie Marson: ...day, we must not on any account become complacent now, but as I said, this decision and others like it come at a cost for the aviation sector in particular. I hold the ambition to safely open the airways as soon as possible. I am particularly keen to support Stansted airport, where a number of my constituents work. To enable that, though, the support that the Government have offered to the...

Employment Rights: Government Plans (25 Jan 2021)

Ed Miliband: ...employers use the crisis as a smokescreen to lower workers’ terms and conditions. Firms that have seen an opportunity to railroad contract changes through at this most difficult of times include British Airways and British Gas. Those are not isolated examples: a TUC survey released today estimates that a staggering nearly one in 10 workers have been subjected to such degrading tactics....

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 12A (21 Jan 2021)

Lord Bruce of Bennachie: ...gas activity in Aberdeen, we had daily flights to not only Heathrow but Gatwick, London City, Luton and Stansted; more recently Loganair trialled a service to Southend, but that did not last long. British Airways pulled out of providing a service to Gatwick and London City years ago. I found that hard to understand, as many of the airline’s holiday flights operate from Gatwick and...

Business of the House (21 Jan 2021)

Gavin Newlands: As the Leader of the House may be aware, I have been campaigning on the issue of fire and rehire since it arose with British Airways. We heard warm words then, and have done throughout the past months, from the Prime Minister and various Ministers, but there has been little action. Indeed, we hear that the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is to review workers’ rights,...

Global Britain (11 Jan 2021)

Mary Foy: ...down to the cavalier and reckless attitude being shown by greedy Heathrow bosses towards their loyal and hard-working staff. The shameful fire-and-rehire threats from both airport management and British Airways have triggered strike action, which escalated throughout last month and into the new year. Cargo handlers, security guards, engineers, firefighters and now, potentially, Border...

Public Health ( 6 Jan 2021)

Ian Byrne: ...his financial plan to support people in Liverpool? On top of this, there have been many punishing job losses from rogue employers. Howling examples include the pernicious use of fire and rehire by British Airways and British Gas, and the treatment of a loyal workforce by Rolls-Royce at Barnoldswick. The Government must step in to fight for them and outlaw this pernicious practice, which...

Backbench Business: UK Hydrogen Economy (17 Dec 2020)

Alexander Stafford: I welcome that follow-up. I always say that we should, where we can, buy British and buy the best, but one of the benefits of leaving the European Union is that we can have our pick and choice of the world. I want the best to be built in Britain. Let us turn back to the RTFO, which I know the Minister is terribly interested to hear about. A reformed RTFO will prevent taxpayers’ money from...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Employers: Dismiss and Re-engage Tactics (15 Dec 2020)

Mike Amesbury: First it was British Airways, and now British Gas/Centrica has threatened thousands of employees with fire and rehire tactics, including a number of my constituents, such as Wayne and Paul. These people have many decades of experience working for these British companies and our society. Will the Minister join me in condemning the company’s actions? What action is the Department taking to...

Backbench Business: UK Relations with Qatar — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (10 Dec 2020)

James Cleverly: ...-to-person relationships matter hugely. On my visit, I was warmly welcomed by Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Sultan bin Saad al-Muraikhi and Lolwah al-Khater. I was reminded that over 16,000 British nationals live and work in Qatar, and the UK is a second home to many Qataris. There were a record 175,000 visits from Qatar to the UK in 2019, worth over half a billion pounds to the UK...

Covid-19: Access to and Acceptance of Cash — [David Mundell in the Chair] ( 3 Dec 2020)

Jim Shannon: ...slightly, but flights from Northern Ireland to here are quite restricted. I have to go over first thing in the morning and come back last thing at night, because there are not many options. British Airways has put a flight on in the last week. It informed us this week that we could not get a boarding pass online, but we had to present ourselves at the airport where a person would hand it...

Transport: Aviation Sector Employment: Covid-19 ( 3 Dec 2020)

Florence Eshalomi: British Airways is a flagship airline; it is recognised across the world for its quality mark, and that is largely down to the professionalism of its staff, many of whom live in my Vauxhall constituency. Yet its actions during this pandemic, including firing and rehiring so many staff on reduced wages and incredibly bad terms, have been utterly disgraceful. Why have the Government not stepped...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: British Airways and Easyjet: Repayments (25 Nov 2020)

Baroness Randerson: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the findings by Which? that British Airways and Easyjet had required customers to accept vouchers rather than refunds when they were unable to fly because of COVID-19 restrictions; and what steps they intend to take to ensure that those airlines adopt procedures that make it easy for customers to claim refunds.

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 30 (23 Nov 2020)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...Wales and the Midlands? If they were in audio-visual—for example, cable TV—or healthcare services, both of which benefit from exemptions, what would be the difference? What protections does British Airways have from regional airlines and vice versa? Why do sectors such as property, intellectual property, education and architecture need to be the subject of the regulations in this part...

The Future of Work (19 Nov 2020)

Kirsten Oswald: ...and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) is working across parties on his Employment (Dismissal and Re-employment) (No. 2) Bill, which has the backing of major trade unions including Unite, the British Airline Pilots Association and GMB Scotland. It is a response to disgraceful actions by companies including Centrica and British Airways, which tried to use the cover of the pandemic to lay...

Worker Exploitation: Leicester Textile Industry: Aviation Industry — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (18 Nov 2020)

Mike Kane: ...of its fabric. We have all seen the impact of cuts and what they have meant for staff, with some 4,500 jobs lost at easyJet; bases closing at Newcastle, Stansted and Southend; 12,000 job losses at British Airways; 3,000 jobs lost at Ryanair; 4,500 jobs lost at Virgin Atlantic; and more job losses at Heathrow, Manchester, Gatwick, Stansted and our smaller regional airports.
