Rebecca Long-Bailey comments on loss of 250 jobs at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the loss of a further 250 jobs at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant, said:

‘’When PSA Group took over Vauxhall last year the Government promised it would do the utmost to protect workers, but since then a third of jobs at Ellesmere Port have been cut.

“The Tories are failing to give businesses and workers the security they need to navigate Brexit, which has been demonstrated again in today’s EEF report on manufacturer’s expectations for 2018.

“The Government must set out how it will support the plant and urgently provide certainty for the sector as a whole after Brexit.’’
