P&O: Shapps must answer questions in Parliament over November meeting

Responding to news that the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps met with DP World in Dubai in November 2021 and that he was warned that P&O would be needing to make changes to their business, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Business, Trade and Transport, Sarah Olney MP said: “Grant Shapps has serious questions to answer about what he knew and when about P&O’s plans to shamefully sack its workers.

“The Transport Secretary must come before Parliament to provide the urgent answers that P&O workers and their families deserve.

“It’s looks increasingly like Grant Shapps was asleep at the wheel, and missed vital opportunities to intervene and protect people’s livelhihoods. If that is the case, he would surely have no choice but to resign.”
