McDonnell reacts to Javid’s comments that manufacturing won’t suffer from government plans not to stay aligned to EU rules

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on Sajid Javid’s latest comments that manufacturing won’t suffer from government plans not to stay aligned to EU rules, said:

“Increasingly Sajid Javid is looking completely out of touch with the reality our businesses are facing.

“His is reneging on the commitment that Johnson gave to manufacturers during the election campaign that they would be protected. Jobs are being put at risk by Javid’s right wing ideology overriding common sense.”
