Transport Questions – 2 July 2020

Earlier today I was at the dispatch box for Oral Transport questions, you can find a clip of my question below.

The Government’s half hearted approach to the transport crisis has let down so many people. Coronavirus has had an enormous impact upon the travel industry and the Government must guarantee assistance to consumers and operators alike.

Why won’t the Government commit to a strategy and to financial assistance to aid the aviation sector? Their delay and lack of commitment to support such a vital industry is not good enough for the sector or those who work in it. If not now, when?
