Unions have welcomed the £200 million investment at Jaguar Landrover leading to 250 new jobs.

Unite's national officer for the automotive industries Roger Maddison said:

"Unite members have shown that they have the skills and commitment to make Land Rover the world leader that it is."

“These new jobs are an important stepping stone to the creation of more such highly skilled jobs."

“The UK car industry has gone through a renaissance in the last decade and is once again at the forefront of British manufacturing, producing high quality vehicles, many of which are exported abroad."

“The bedrock of this achievement has been the good working relationship that the trades unions and employers have built up on the industrial relations front.”
