Government says job losses at Honda are a 'bitter blow'

This will be a bitter blow to the workforce and the local area and we will be working with local partners to minimise the impact of the job losses. Times are tough in the European market but the automotive industry remains a major success story for the UK. Over the last two years global manufacturers including Nissan, JLR and BMW have invested 6 billion in the UK safeguarding and creating new jobs.”
