U.K. car manufacturing fell by 3.3 percent in the first half of 2018, as a drop in production for the home U.K. market more than offset increased shipments to locations including Japan and South Korea. Commenting, Best for Britain champion Madeleine Moon MP said:
|"This is truly shocking news.
"The automotive industry has been warning of the dangers facing their sector and now it appears the reality of Brexit is setting in. Jobs have already gone in a number of car factories.
"When will this government finally admit to the damage they're causing and start to listen to groups like the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders who don't want British cars stagnating in the slow lane?"
