Decarbonising Aviation

The following is an extract from the Westminster Hall debate on Decarbonising Aviation on 21 September 2021.

The hon. Lady makes a very good point, and I am grateful to her for it. I have a great deal of sympathy with people who ask for the membership of the Jet Zero Council. We have to have a finite number of people on the council, simply because it is a technical body and has to be able to produce results, but trade unions are involved in the sub-groups, which I will spend a moment talking about, particularly to put right some of the misunderstandings.

Letter of correction from the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, the hon. Member for Witney (Robert Courts):

Errors have been identified in the response I gave to the hon. Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy).

The correct response should have been:

The hon. Lady makes a very good point, and I am grateful to her for it. I have a great deal of sympathy with people who ask for the membership of the Jet Zero Council. We have to have a finite number of people on the main council, simply because it is a technical body and has to be able to produce results. Trade unions are also not currently involved in the sub-groups, which I will spend a moment talking about, particularly to put right some of the misunderstandings.
