What the papers say – June 22

A variety of stories make the front pages on Friday – from a Brexit warning by Airbus to the impending Heathrow expansion vote.

The Times reports that aerospace company Airbus is on the brink of becoming the first big manufacturer to pull investment from Britain in the wake of Theresa May’s stalled Brexit negotiations.

The paper says the firm is looking to move production to China, the US or elsewhere in Europe because of worries that EU safety certifications will not apply from March next year and uncertainty over customs checks.

The Prime Minister is also under pressure over the looming Heathrow expansion vote, The Guardian says, with international trade minister Greg Hands stepping down in protest at the Government’s plans.

His announcement also increased pressure on Boris Johnson, another critic of the proposals, to stand by his principles and vote against the plans, the paper adds.
