To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to his oral contribution of 4 November 2021, Official Report, Column 1047, what the basis is for his statement that the GMB union supports (a) stopping people from flying, or allowing them to go on holiday only once every five years and (b) preventing people from using their cars.

My Rt Hon Friend the Secretary of State mis-spoke during Transport Questions. What he meant to say was that the plan that Labour is proposing - to stop people from flying, or to allow them to go on holiday only once every five years, and to prevent them from using their cars - is opposed by the GMB union, who usually support them.
