That this House expresses its concern at the continued dispute of staff represented by the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s (DVLA) Swansea office; regrets that over 600 cases of covid-19 have been recorded and one member of staff has died; deplores the blatant disregard of senior management towards the justifiable, widespread health and safety concerns of staff and PCS; believes that key workers who are required on-site should be assured of a covid-secure, safe working environment and all others should work from home; and calls on the Government to use its influence, as a matter of urgency, to help resolve this dispute and ensure that the health and safety of staff is prioritised by the Department for Transport and senior leaders at the DVLA.
