Government must deliver on promised trade deal with the EU – Lucy Powell

Lucy Powell MP, Shadow Minister for Business and Consumers, commenting on reports about trade deal negotiations with the EU that suggest the UK automotive industry is set to lose out, said:

“This is really worrying for our country’s automotive industry. The Government must listen to businesses and trade unions, and crack on to deliver the trade deal with the EU they promised during the election.

“Both sides need to work harder and ensure a deal is reached that protects the businesses and jobs that our communities rely on, or risk adding to the growing unemployment crisis.”
