Vauxhall - part of Groupe PSA - is a key part of the UK’s successful automotive industry, with major commercial vehicle manufacturing in Luton, as well as its significant operation at Ellesmere Port. Groupe PSA recently announced that the next generation Astra could be produced at Ellesmere Port. We are continuing our active dialogue with Vauxhall and others in the Automotive sector and I was delighted to speak with the company in recent weeks to discuss their UK operations and to reiterate our support for investments in new technology, R&D and electrification.
