Rebecca Long Bailey comments on Jaguar Land Rover’s statement regarding concerns about the Government’s handling of Brexit

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on Jaguar Land Rover’s statement regarding concerns about the Government’s handling of Brexit, said:

“This stark warning from one of the jewels in the crown of British automotive manufacturing should be a klaxon call to Theresa May and her cabinet. They cannot continue to spar with each other and play ideological games whilst British jobs and industries are being pushed off the edge of a cliff.

“Uncertainty is already hurting investment and if the Government cannot provide urgent assurances to business on negotiating a deal that secures frictionless trade with the EU, our biggest export market, 40,000 jobs at Jaguar Land Rover and countless supply chain businesses could be lost in the blink of an eye, devastating our world leading automotive sector along with the communities that support them.”
