PM’s failure to deliver caused the loss of major employers in Bridgend

Ed Miliband, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the news the Grenadier car will be built in France and not Wales, said:

“It’s crushing news the Grenadier car will now be built in France rather than Bridgend, especially following the closure of Ford’s plant leading to scores of highly-skilled jobs lost.

“Boris Johnson’s dithering, delay, and failure to deliver appears to have led to the loss of two major employers in the area – and it’s devastating that communities in Wales will pay the price of his incompetence.

“It’s also a big betrayal of the promises made by the Conservatives during the election to deliver jobs and investment in Bridgend.”
