Jim McMahon – 2021 Comments on Gatwick Job Losses

The comments made by Jim McMahon, the Shadow Transport Secretary, on 14 January 2021.

Nearly a year has passed since the Government promised proper support for aviation to help businesses through the pandemic. Ministers’ incompetence and failure to act is costing jobs.

Labour has repeatedly 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.
