Vince Cable welcomes Jaguar jobs

Business Secretary Vince Cable, who met Jaguar Land Rover's senior management last week about increasing production at Halewood, said:

"It is excellent news that Jaguar Land Rover is taking on another 1,000 people and increasing shifts at its Halewood plant to meet strong global demand for its products.

Today's announcement is further evidence of the strength of the UK automotive sector and will also have a positive impact on growth in local supply chains."
