Ford said the ‘business scenario had changed’ since the job creation plans were announced more than two years ago. Jaguar has abandoned its growth strategy, closed one of its three plants and lost upwards of £1bn. Ford has just begun seeking 1,200 voluntary redundancies at Solihull, including 1,000 related to the Freelander’s move to Halewood, and expects enough volunteers to have finished the cuts by the summer.
