PMQs: Johnson vows to take ‘legal action’ on P&O Ferries

Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer became embroiled in a heated clash over the sacking of 800 P&O Ferries staff, as the prime minister vowed to take “action” against the firm.

Starmer caused a stir in the House of Commons by taking on the government over the sacking of 800 British workers. These workers are being replaced by workers from an agency working for less than the minimum wage.

Labour’s leader stated: “If a prime minister can’t stop that, what’s the point of his government?”

The prime minister said he condemned the “callous behaviour” of P&O Ferries.

“It looks to me like the company has broken the law and we will take action”, Johnson added.
