Explanation of written questions
8th Feb 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions he has had with the management and unions of Rolls-Royce on (a) the effect on the supply chain and (b) other effects of a shutdown in production; and if he will make a statement.

The Government has regular engagement with Rolls-Royce on a wide range of issues, including to understand the impact of COVID-19 on its business, employees and UK supply chain and how best to help them through the crisis and into recovery.

Temporarily closing facilities is a commercial decision for Rolls-Royce and I understand the company is currently consulting with Union and Employee representatives around these proposals.

Paul Scully
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)
6th May 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether he has had discussions with representatives of Rolls Royce on measures to support the manufacturing sector to manage the financial effect of the covid-19 outbreak.

The Government is committed to supporting companies through the COVID-19 crisis and has worked with many businesses across the economy to understand how best to do so, including Rolls-Royce.

The Government has been in close discussions with Rolls-Royce on the various business support schemes available to the business and its suppliers. Through the Aerospace Growth Partnership , the company has also fed into the Government’s dialogue with the wider aerospace sector about business support.
