We have not made an assessment at this time. We have, however, set up the Honda Swindon Taskforce, chaired by my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, which will look to support those affected and to continue Swindon’s record of attracting investment to create highly-skilled jobs that offer fulfilling careers for years to come.

We are doing everything possible to support businesses, their workforce and communities affected by the announcements. We continue the strive to attract investment, creating highly-skilled jobs that offer fulfilling careers for years to come.
