Mary Creagh: ..., worker protection in that industry has been potentially much weaker outside the UK?

Bombardier - Statement (10 Oct 2017)

Lord King of Bridgwater: doing to Boeing. The earlier that Boeing can use its influence on the various authorities—it has some influence there—the better. Boeing did not quote for this plane. No US jobs are put at risk by Delta buying these planes. There is no evidence that they could come from an alternative American supplier, as far as I am aware. Against that background, I strongly hope that we...
