Honda pools UK car stocks as Japanese plants face continued operation halts

Workers at Honda plants in Japan will take 14 days off between June and August because of continuing disruption caused by March's earthquake and tsunami.


Staff will take an extra day off in June, 10 more in July and three in August, reports the BBC.

They will work those days in the latter part of the year, when Honda hopes to make up the production shortfall.

Honda UK has taken action to ensure dealers can make capitalise on the new car stock available in the UK.

AM understands dealers consignments have been pulled back by Honda UK to allow the whole dealer network to tap into what stock is available.
