House of Commons
CLOSURE OF THE HONDA SWINDON PLANT
EDM #2220
Tabled 25 March 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House is deeply concerned at the news that Honda plans to close its Swindon plant; recognises the devastating impact this planned closure will have on the 3,500 people directly employed by Honda as well as the thousands of people whose employment depends on the supply chain, their families and the communities supported by them; notes with distress that this would be the first closure of an automotive plant since 2013; is alarmed as this reflects a worrying wider trend in UK manufacturing where 130 jobs are currently being lost each day; further notes that exports of finished vehicles from the UK, including 85 per cent of Honda production, are key to a diverse economy and balance of trade; and urges the Government to take urgent action in developing a clear plan to transition the UK automotive sector towards a green and clean future beyond the combustion engine, keep Honda in Swindon and its supply chain secure, while preserving the UK's status as a global lead in the automotive industry.
