Asked if there was any reaction to Airbus, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the Prime Minister said it all at PMQs in terms of we obviously regret any job losses at all but in terms of securing the future contribution of skill workers in this country to Airbus that is there and the DTI have worked very hard with the company to make sure that it the case.

Asked if the Government felt its voice was being listened to sufficiently by EADA given the announcement, the PMOS said that if people looked at the reassurances that have been given about future work in factories here then and the way in which the DTI have worked with the company then it does bode well for the future. The important thing was that there is a skilled workforce and that skilled workforce has work in front of it. And that is important, much as we regret the need for job loses of any kind at all.

Asked if there were any plans to get a representative from the UK on the board of Airbus, the PMOS said that it was more a question for the department.
