Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Ports (13 Jun 2019)

Karl Turner: We could be just four months away from a disastrous no-deal Brexit, yet the Government have put on hold their contingency plans. The Secretary of State’s previous efforts resulted in 89 lorries and a refuse truck pretending to be on convoy to Dover, when in reality that route takes 10,000 heavy goods vehicles a day. He doled out contracts to ferry companies that did not have any actual...

Offshore Helicopter Safety — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Karl Turner: ...remain a member of EASA when we leave the EU? I have raised that issue with the Minister on a number of occasions, but he has yet to confirm the Government’s position. What impact will a no-deal Brexit have on our ability to carry out such reviews? Even with the improvements to safety since 2013, the core issue of workforce confidence still needs to be tackled. Offshore workers’...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Aviation (10 Jan 2019)

Karl Turner: The Prime Minister’s deal looks dead and we could well be heading into the chaos of a no-deal Brexit. If that is the case, we will no longer be a member of the European Aviation Safety Agency. Given that we do not currently have a bilateral air safety agreement with the US, can the Secretary of State give a guarantee that in the event of no deal there will be no disruption to flights?

Leaving the EU: Aviation Sector — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2018)

Karl Turner: ...It creates a million jobs, brings in tax revenues, and is vital for importing and exporting trade. We are now just five months away from leaving the EU, and as the days pass, the risk of a no deal Brexit becomes greater. Regrettably, it seems to be becoming more likely by the day that we might leave the European Union without a deal. Let us be clear: a no deal Brexit would be a disaster...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Lorry Parking (1 Mar 2018)

Karl Turner: The chairman of Maritime UK has said that, if a deal is not reached on Brexit, lorry drivers could be stuck on the main roads to Dover for up to two days. Even if a deal is reached, with a hard border at vital ferry ports, the industry is warning that customs and port health checks will cause massive disruptions. What concrete assurances can the Secretary of State give us that that will not...

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Karl Turner: ..., but the Government could perhaps have dealt with some of the industry’s concerns. This is yet another example of the Government introducing skeleton legislation while they flail around on Brexit. The Opposition intend to support the Bill, but we may in Committee need to table amendments on issues on which we have concerns, one of which is the delegated powers that the Bill will give to...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Karl Turner: ...have estimated that the overall benefits of ULEVs and autonomous vehicles will be in the region of £51 billion a year and that they could create an additional 320,000 jobs. In the light of Brexit, supporting this industry will be vital to the future of our economy. The uptake of ULEVs will also play an important role in tackling the air quality crisis, which reportedly leads to 50,000...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Karl Turner: ...must be proper training for sales personnel as well. On infrastructure more broadly, the Government must ensure that regulatory divergence does not develop between the UK and the EU as a result of Brexit; this is a very important issue. We must absolutely ensure that regulation and standards are maintained after Brexit. That is essential if the UK is to be the vehicle manufacturers’...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Civil Aviation (19 Oct 2017)

Karl Turner: The Secretary of State may be in denial, but the Chancellor has finally fessed up to the fact that, if there is no Brexit deal, it is conceivable that flights between the UK and the EU might be grounded. Is it not time for the Government to get their finger out and give the reassurances that the aviation sector so badly needs?

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Potential impact of leaving the EU on consumer protection under the ATOL scheme (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: ...companies, as they will no longer be subject to ATOL but to member state equivalents, we welcome changes that will ultimately help to protect more holidaymakers. The implications for ATOL after Brexit are also a cause for concern. Hidden in the Bill are proposals that the Secretary of State should require only an affirmative resolution to significantly reform ATOL and the air travel trust...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Potential impact of leaving the EU on consumer protection under the ATOL scheme (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: ...we can assist in this instance. The Government need to bring forward legislation on the misuse of lasers and on the regulation of drones and to provide clarity and certainty for UK aviation post-Brexit. We would welcome the Government adopting those policies, and they will have our full support if they do so. Labour broadly supports the Bill, because it extends protections to many more...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: ...EU and UK regulations. Instead, it is a dormant power that the Government will retain in order to make considerable changes to ATOL, and particularly to the Air Travel Trust. That is where Brexit comes in because, were such changes to happen, they would most likely be in the event of the UK leaving the European Union. During one of the VTAB Committee evidence sessions, Richard Moriarty of...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: ...could lose out, so we are asking the Government to consider the issue and to monitor the situation properly. As with so many other things, the environment is changing, particularly in relation to Brexit. ATOL will still be there post-Brexit, but we will explore possible changes when we discuss the next group of amendments. The package travel directive will no doubt still be there for those...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill: Air travel organisers’ licences (11 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: I will not give way. We ask the Government to get the ball rolling within a year of the Bill receiving Royal Assent, but a regular review is also needed, particularly in the light of Brexit. Our amendment is supported by the Association of British Travel Agents and other travel organisations. Despite ministerial assurances, we want our amendment to be made to the Bill, so we will press it to...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Karl Turner: If the hon. Gentleman does not mind, I will not give way at this stage. I am hoping to mention some of the wonderful maiden speeches if I have time later. The implications of ATOL after Brexit are also a cause for concern. Hidden in the Bill are proposals that the Secretary of State will require only the affirmative resolution procedure to significantly reform ATOL and the air travel trust...
