“The proposal we have put forward to the European Union for our future economic relationship with the EU for a free trade area, frictionless trade across borders, absolutely addresses the issues that manufacturers have been raising with us,” May informed BBC TV, when requested about considerations raised by the boss of Jaguar Land Rover (TAMO.NS).
Earlier this month Ralf Speth warned that the flawed Brexit deal might value tens of 1000’s of automotive jobs and dangers manufacturing on the agency, particularly if there are delays at ports and on motorways as a consequence of customs checks.
