To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of Jaguar Land Rover’s decision to shut down production short-term due to Brexit.
16 April 2019
We cannot comment on commercial decisions made by individual companies. However, the Government has a long-standing relationship and regular dialogue, with all major UK car manufacturers including Jaguar Land Rover, on a range of issues including EU Exit.
Jaguar Land Rover is a hugely important company for the UK. The company remains committed to its UK operations and is continuing to invest in this country.
Leaving the EU with a deal that supports the future of British industry remains the Government’s top priority.
We are determined to ensure that the UK continues to be one of the most competitive locations in the world for automotive and other advanced manufacturing.
