SMMT figures show the Conservatives’ refusal to listen is already damaging the UK automotive sector – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the halving of investment in UK car manufacturing, said:

‘‘The Government has refused to listen to the cries from businesses and unions for clarity in their Brexit negotiations and for a customs union to support jobs and industry.

“Today’s SMMT figures clearly show that the Conservatives’ refusal to listen is already damaging the UK automotive sector.

“The Government must listen to businesses and unions, negotiate with the EU rather than amongst themselves, and secure a jobs first deal which keeps skilled jobs and successful industries in the UK.’’
