Brexit: UK Automotive Sector

7th November 2017

Member of Parliament for The Cotswolds, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, today called on the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, to get a Brexit agreement that supports the UK’s automotive sector and jobs. Mitsubishi UK’s headquarters in Cirencester employs over 250 people and support 113 dealerships nationwide.

This was highlighted in the following exchange in the House of Commons:

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown (The Cotswolds) (Con)

Mitsubishi’s headquarters are in Cirencester, where it employs 250 people and supports 113 dealerships throughout the UK. I wholeheartedly endorse my right hon. Friend’s remarks about needing to secure a Brexit agreement that supports the automotive sector, so that we can protect those jobs

Greg Clark

I am grateful to my hon. Friend. The industry is aware of the firmness of our intention. It makes no sense to disrupt what has been a very successful relationship between this country and some of the home countries of those manufacturers: that is very clear in all our minds.
