NIO Ministers regularly discuss with Cabinet colleagues the support that the UK Government can and is providing to the Northern Ireland economy, including with the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Secretary of State for Transport. In this case, support for business is devolved and we will continue to engage with Ministers in the NI Executive on how UKG can best support the Executive in our shared goal of seeing the Northern Ireland economy thrive.

We will continue these discussions as we work to get things back up and running and laying the foundations for a stable and sustainable recovery for Northern Ireland, including for the aerospace sector.
