Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: India: Coronavirus ( 8 Sep 2020)

Nigel Adams: ...on other services run by airlines, which have taken place since our last charter to India on 05 June. These include regular Air India "Vande Bharat" flights and, more recently, flights run by British Airways to the UK. The British government worked hard to ensure these flights could operate and is continuing to support other UK airlines resume their services, maximising options for UK...

International Travel ( 7 Sep 2020)

Jim McMahon: ...saw was not really air corridors, air bridges or whatever name is given to them, but essentially a list produced by the Foreign Office, half of the countries on which had placed restrictions on British travellers going there—no travel corridor or air bridge at all. Now we are seeing countries coming and going off the list, with very little notice for those who have decided to go on...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: India: Coronavirus ( 1 Sep 2020)

Nigel Adams: We believe the vast majority of British travellers seeking to return to the UK - who don't have commercial options - have now done so. Through our embassies, and a dedicated central team, we continue to support British nationals who need consular support and are working to ensure commercial routes are maintained. We have brought nearly 18,000 people back to the UK on 66 chartered flights from...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Jessica Morden: ...who have lost their jobs during the pandemic or are now at risk, including constituents of mine at Virgin, Caldicot Tinmasters, the Orb steelworks, which closed on 3 July, EnerSys, Newsquest, British Airways, the Celtic Manor and more. I hope that the Government will look at more ways to support those different groups over the following months. I urge them to look at the report by Chwarae...

Petition - Future of the Aviation and Aerospace Industry (21 Jul 2020)

Patrick Grady: British Airways staff have been renowned for decades for their commitment to first-class customer service, and long before lockdown and furlough, BA was in receipt of public funding, not least through the air fares of generations of Members of Parliament, peers, and Ministers from Scotland and elsewhere in the UK travelling to this place. So to say that my constituents and I are disappointed...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Support for Businesses: Scotland (21 Jul 2020)

Gavin Newlands: ...-Royce offered voluntary redundancy. Moreover, the Government have not acted to stop companies such as Menzies Aviation and Centrica following the deplorable fire-and-rehire tactics employed by British Airways, which are now being enforced. Will he tell the House whether he thinks it fair that an employer can force an employer on to reduced terms and conditions or face redundancy? Why is...

Restoration and Renewal (16 Jul 2020)

Chris Bryant: I, too, wish we were debating something else. I would like to be debating, for instance, the way British Airways is treating its staff and, for that matter, its customers, but we have this debate this afternoon. I could just say, “I refer hon. Members to the speech that I made last time”, or to the one before, but, unfortunately, I am not going to do that. I do love this building....

Business of the House (16 Jul 2020)

James Murray: British Airways has treated its workers disgracefully, threatening to fire all 42,000 and rehire around two thirds on terms and pay that will set people back decades. It is frustrating that the Prime Minister has not yet made clear what consequences BA will face, including for its favourable landing slot allocation. Will the Leader of the House therefore invite the Prime Minister to make a...

Covid-19: Future UK-EU Relationship (15 Jul 2020)

Gavin Newlands: ...before. People in Scotland also know that our democratic wish to work alongside our longstanding partners and allies has been torn up and chucked in the Brexit bin. Again, we are seeing that the British state is fundamentally incapable of good governance for Scotland or the rest of the UK. A clique of self-congratulatory Oxbridge graduates would steer their own country on to the rocks in...

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jul 2020)

Boris Johnson: support their workers and keep them in employment where they possibly can.  I have made that point clear on the Floor of the House just in the past couple of weeks. Let us be absolutely clear: British Airways and many other companies are in severe difficulties at the moment, and we cannot, I am afraid, simply with a magic wand ensure that every single job that was being done before...

Taiwan - Question (14 Jul 2020)

Lord Bowness: ...are very well disposed towards Taiwan. However, that is only one element. In the UK, we have seen the City of London withdraw its invitation to Taiwan to participate in the Lord Mayor’s Show and British Airways rewrite its destination listings so that Taiwan and, indeed, Hong Kong, are listed under China. Does my noble friend agree that we should be giving organisations such as the City...

Chi Onwurah: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent discussions he has had with British Airways about job retention.

Business of the House ( 9 Jul 2020)

Valerie Vaz: ..., and I wonder whether, in the autumn statement, there will be vouchers for the gym. The Chancellor was right that there is a nobility of work. Where is the nobility of work for the 12,000 staff at British Airways? Where is the nobility of work for the 3,000 Rolls-Royce staff, or the nobility of work for our manufacturing sector, with over 1,000 jobs being lost at JLR in the west midland?...

The Economy ( 8 Jul 2020)

Gavin Newlands: In the last few weeks alone, my constituency has seen Rolls-Royce announce 700 redundancies, Menzies Aviation 160 and Swissport 321, all adding to the toll of expected job losses at British Airways, NCP, easyJet, Jet2, Flybe, BA CityFlyer, TUI, North Air and SSP. I would have included Ryanair in that list, but I am pleased to say that it has just reached an agreement with Unite on temporary...

Economic Update ( 8 Jul 2020)

James Murray: ...scheme made it clear: “Integral to the purpose of the CJRS” is that the grant “is used by the employer to continue the employment of employees”. Will the Chancellor therefore confirm that British Airways would be liable to pay back any taxpayers’ money used to furlough staff the company chose to put on notice of redundancy during that furlough period?

Coronavirus: Job-Support Schemes ( 7 Jul 2020)

Dan Carden: ...the gaps. We have heard that it was as many as 3 million, according to ExcludedUK, and upwards of 1 million, according to the Treasury Committee. Perhaps most shamefully, some companies, such as British Airways, have used lockdown and the job retention scheme not to protect jobs, but as cover to plot mass redundancies and drive down the pay, terms and conditions of their workforce. That is...

Manchester Airport and the Local Economy ( 2 Jul 2020)

Kelly Tolhurst: ...will act within and, where possible, beyond the requirements and the spirit of all relevant legislation. The hon. Member for Stockport and my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington South mentioned British Airways in particular. I have spoken directly to BA and to the IAG chief executive, Willie Walsh, to discuss the organisation’s plans and its engagement with staff and union...
