Government failure on aviation is costing jobs – McMahon

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Transport, commenting on the aviation sector’s renewed calls for a support package, said:

“It’s almost a year since ministers promised a sector specific support package for the aviation industry, but it’s yet to materialise. It’s clear that Government failure is costing jobs.

“Labour has consistently called for a sectoral deal that supports the whole aviation industry including securing jobs and protecting the supply chain, while continuing to press for higher environmental standards.”
