The Government has today met the automotive sector to discuss the help available to the stricken industry. Commenting, David Frost, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said: 

"It is vital that the finance now available reaches businesses working in the automotive supply chain.  “The vehicle industry will be central to driving our economy out of recession and employs large numbers of highly skilled individuals producing efficient cars for the global market of the future. It would be an absolute tragedy to lose these skills.

“There has been much talk about helping the industry but we now need to see action. We may also need further measures, not least the scrap and build policy which exists in Germany and is already boosting production.”
