The aviation sector needs the full package of support the Chancellor promised months ago

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to news of British Airways receiving a government backed loan, said:

“This piecemeal approach from the Government appears to do very little to protect the rights of workers, who have suffered as a result of opportunistic fire and rehire policies, and leaves the taxpayer to shoulder most of the risk.

“It’s time for the Chancellor to deliver on the full package of support he promised the aviation sector months ago.”
