Lucy Powell – 2020 Comments on Car Sales

The comments made by Lucy Powell, the Shadow Minister for Business and Consumers, on 5 October 2020.

These figures underline the crisis in demand facing the car industry, highlighting yet again the very sectoral nature of this economic crisis and why support really does need to be focused of those sectors most adversely affected.

Ministers are failing communities and companies up and down the country with their sink or swim approach. If they do not act, we could see further waves of redundancies and some viable businesses and sectors disappearing for good.
