Mike Kane – 2020 Comments on the Government and the Aviation Industry

Below is the text of the comments made by Mike Kane, the Shadow Aviation Minister, on 13 June 2020.

This cross party report lays out in stark detail that the Government has failed in its fundamental duty to protect jobs and livelihoods in response to the covid-19 crisis.

Labour has consistently called for a sectoral deal that supports the whole aviation industry including the supply chain based on our six conditions. Tory Ministers have failed to act and workers are paying the price.
