EU allows sweetener which leads to British job losses

As Jaguar Land Rover prepares to axe 4,500 jobs, West Midlands MEP James Carver condemned the payment of a £110 million sweetener made possible under EU rules to build a plant in Slovakia.

He said: “JLR is an iconic British company, albeit now under Indian ownership – and thanks to EU rules Slovakia was able to offer the cash to shift production of the Land Rover Discovery to the central European country in 2015, creating 2,300.

“But since then, 1,000 workers lost their jobs in Solihull last year and now another 4,500 mainly UK-based staff face redundancy and we are told the company has refused a relocation offer for staff who might be able to move. So much for the perceived EU level playing field!”
