The UK car production fell 44,5 % in April according to the Society of Motor Facturers & Traders. The organisation estimates that the year-on-year production could fall by 10 %.
Manufacturing for domestic and overseas markets fell 44 % and 45 % respectively as the major companies were having production shutdowns due to Brexit timetable.
The Brexit-issue has also been in the politics. Chancellor of Exchequer Philip Hammond was speaking in the BBC Radio on Thursday and according to him the UK should reach to people if the UK Parliament cannot resolve the case. He was still stressing that the main objective for the Parliament is to proceed with the Brexit deal. He mentioned still that second referendum would be then better than a general election because of the hard situation in the Labour Party and Tories.
– It will be a stain on Parliament´s reputation if at the end, we have to admit that we have been unable to agree how to discharge the Brexit mandate from the people, he also said in the interview according to Independent newspaper.
Mr Hammond said he has a zero-tolerance approach to the breakdown or flouting of cabinet collective responsibility. He also mentioned that he might run for the Conservative leadership race if there is no candidate who would reflect his thoughts properly.
