Electric Cars: Export to EU - Question ( 2 Mar 2023)

Lord Johnson of Lainston: I greatly thank the noble Lord for his intervention and for the important promotion of this industry.

5. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport: The Recent Airbus Group Announcement (26 Jun 2018)

Jack Sargeant: ...'t just a warning unique to Airbus—it's a warning right across the sectors and industries in Wales, and across Europe as well. Over the weekend we've had BMW and we've had many others, including Ferrovial today, and SMMT, which you've made reference to within your statement. All these warnings have one thing in common, and that one thing is uncertainty. Just last week, I was asking...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: secure. These are villages that have been there for 1,000 years, to be wiped off the face of the earth—and for what? To ensure that a company maximises its profits. This is a company owned by Ferrovial, which was founded by Franco contracts, by the Chinese state and by Qatar. It is shipping profits abroad, rather than reinvesting in this country. That is what this vote is about tonight.

Backbench Business — Interest Rate Swap Derivatives: Aviation Strategy (24 Oct 2013)

John Martin McDonnell: ...said, “We’re still in favour of expansion at Heathrow, as long as it is to the north”—a breathtaking act of nimbyism if ever I saw one. The proposals by Heathrow Airport Ltd—now owned by Ferrovial, the Chinese sovereign state fund, and Qatar—looks at an expansion that will take 20,000 people from their homes and expand air pollution, possibly to about 100,000 people. We are...

Infrastructure (Financial Assistance) Bill (17 Sep 2012)

John Martin McDonnell: ...for funding the expansion of Heathrow. It is no wonder, then, that my constituents are anxious about the attitude of the Government to that measure. The measures in the Bill would perfectly suit Ferrovial, the Spanish company established by a fascist in the 1930s who made his profits as a result of contracts awarded to him by Franco. It would ideally suite Ferrovial to come forward and...

Suicide (Prevention): New Clause 6 — Compensation for noise pollution (25 Apr 2012)

John Martin McDonnell: It is offering a small element to try to tart up the front of the shops—that is all. That is the sort of blight that has occurred as a result of the activities of BAA—well not BAA, but Ferrovial, the Spanish company founded by a fascist under Franco that has now exploited my community to maximise its profits and ship them abroad to prop up the construction corporation, which is...

[Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] — backbench business — General Debate ( 5 May 2011)

John Martin McDonnell: ...Thatcher Government privatised it, and as a private company, it was responsible for 85% of air traffic movements in the London area. In March 2006, BAA was taken over by the Spanish company, Grupo Ferrovial, which is a major international construction group. At various times, Ferrovial has had to refinance the debt that it incurred when it purchased BAA, as well as Heathrow and Gatwick...

Postal Services Bill: Committee (4th Day) ( 6 Apr 2011)

Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde: ...of Cadbury and the Boots takeover some time earlier. In this case we are looking at a business that will be regulated, and there are some direct parallels. For instance, in moving to purchase BAA, Ferrovial was warned-perhaps that is too strong a word-by the Civil Aviation Authority, the aviation industry regulator, about the high level of indebtedness it would take on to implement the...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh Airport (Drop-off Charges) ( 9 Sep 2010)

Margaret Smith: park at the Western general hospital, and that was despite years of on-going parking problems in local streets. I am not sure that most people would think that an increased revenue stream for Ferrovial is the right priority. That is not to say that we should not encourage people to take public transport to the airport—of course we should. There is a very good Airlink service for...

Royal Assent (21 Jul 2009)

John Martin McDonnell: ...does not commence until the planning application for Heathrow expansion is actually submitted. That could be years, given the current economic climate and the chaos within BAA and its owner, Grupo Ferrovial. As a result, people are trapped in blight, often in overcrowded and inappropriate accommodation, and unable to plan their lives while this uncertainty hangs over their heads. BAA...
