Swindon Borough Council leader Roderick Bluh has issued a statement reacting to the job losses at Honda.
Honda is one of our biggest and most valued employers in Swindon so we are naturally disappointed the company has had to take this difficult decision. This announcement will affect many people and families throughout Swindon and we will be working with Honda, and our partners, to provide as much support as possible to those employees who are affected by these job losses.
