To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have suspended meetings of the expert steering group representing airports; if so, why; how they intend to liaise with airports on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on airports across England; and when they last held discussions with the representatives of each airport in England.

The Department momentarily paused all non-essential official-led engagement with the aviation sector ahead of Parliament returning, taking the opportunity to review how we engage with industry, both in terms of sharing information and for giving industry the opportunity to feedback as policy develops. Engagement has now restarted, with the Secretary of State having personally spoken to numerous stakeholders.

A revised Expert Steering Group, as well as other forums for engagement have now resumed and we remain committed to an open dialogue with the sector.
