Rebecca Long-Bailey comments on Ford’s planned closure of Brigend plant

Commenting on Ford planning to close its Bridgend plant, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Shadow Secretary for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said “This is worrying news, first and foremost for Ford employees and their families who are left unsure as to their futures, but also for the jobs across the supply chain and the impact on the local economy in Bridgend.

”Hot on the heels from Honda this would be another devastating blow to our car industry and to the UK’s wider manufacturing base.

“The Government must urgently meet with Ford to secure the plant’s future.”
