The CBI has welcomed the announcement by Jaguar Land Rover that it will create 1000 new jobs at its factory in Halewood in Merseyside.
Dr Neil Bentlely, CBI Deputy Director-General said the move was "further evidence of re-balancing across the economy":
“The news that Jaguar Land Rover will be creating a further 1,000 jobs at its Halewood plant is a shot in the arm for UK manufacturing and the automotive industry in particular.
“Jaguar Land Rover continues to be a great British success story, which provides a real boost to its supply chain and the wider economy.”
