Drop in car production rings alarm bells that government mismanagement is destroying manufacturing industry – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the drop in car manufacturing, said:

“This almost 20% drop in car production should be ringing the loudest of alarm bells to the government that their mismanagement is destroying our manufacturing industry. The automotive sector is a vital national industry, a key exporter and provider of highly skilled well paid jobs to hundreds of thousands of people.

“With production falling and plants closing, the government must not let this vital sector be the victim of their reckless No Deal Brexit policy.”
