Thank you for contacting me about restructuring at BT.
Obviously, I regret any loss of jobs in the UK as a result of redundancy and I appreciate the efforts of BT staff to keep communication lines open during a period where many people have relied on them to work or learn from home.
Ministerial colleagues regularly engage with BT about a range of topics, including their UK workforce, at both the Official and Ministerial levels. Ultimately, however, BT is a private company so decisions about its structure and employment are a matter for its Board. I am aware that BT’s approach is to minimise redundancies through natural attrition and to provide opportunities to re-skill and redeploy workers whenever possible.
