BA Pensions problems

Several constituents have written to me about the current disputes over indexation of pension benefits at BA. They asked me to attend the debate on this matter, which I did.

On Monday evening this week Kate Green held an adjournment debate to highlight the problem. The Minister in response reminded the House that one of the issues is the subject of court action preventing the government from expressing a view. The Adjournment debate was well attended for a such a debate after 10pm, showing the concerns of constituents and their MPs from a range of constituencies with affected BA staff and pensioners. If any constituent needs a transcript of what was said, please let me know.
