Support Aviation, Travel & Tourism Sector

Along with colleagues from across the House of Commons, I have signed this cross party letter urging the Chancellor to extend furlough to support aviation, travel and tourism sector jobs, of which there are many in East Renfrewshire.


I know this is an issue of significant concern to constituents employed in these areas, and with figures released by the Office for National Statistics showing 57% of passenger air transport employees remain on furlough alongside 51% for travel agency and tour operator activities, it is clear that a targetted furlough extension would make a significant impact, and that failure to provide this continuing support, risks significant redundancies.
