Claire Perry MP on Honda's 'devastating decision'

Devizes MP Claire Perry issued the following statement following Honda's decision to close its manufacturing operations in Swindon:

"Honda have announced, as part of global restructuring, plans to close their Swindon plant in 2021; and instead manufacture and export the new Civic model into Europe from Japan."

"As Honda have said, this is a commercial decision based on unprecedented changes in global markets.  Regardless, this is a devastating decision for Swindon and UK."

"I know that this news is extremely worrying to the thousands of skilled and dedicated staff who work at the factory, their families and all of those employed in the supply chain, including some in my own Constituency."

"That is why I am glad to see that the Secretary of State for Business announced today [February 19] that he will convene a taskforce in Swindon with local MPs, civic and business leaders as well as trade union representatives to ensure that the skills and expertise of the workforce is retained, and these highly valued employees move into new skilled employment."

"The automotive industry is undergoing a rapid transition to new technology.  The UK is one of the leaders in the development of these technologies and so it is deeply disappointing that this decision has been take now."
