Brexit uncertainty threatens future of Ellesmere Port, Vauxhall boss warns

Carlos Tavares, PSA Group

The future of Ellesmere Port is under threat because of a continuing lack of clarity on the UK’s Brexit plans.

Carlos Tavares (pictured), chief executive of PSA, which owns Vauxhall, Peugeot and Citroen told the BBC yesterday at the Geneva Motor Show the uncertainty was "a big concern" and that uncertainty undermined the plant’s chances of getting more work after 2021.

"We cannot invest in a world of uncertainty," he said.

"No one is going to make huge investments without knowing what will be the final competitiveness of the Brexit outcome."

He added a decision on whether or not to give Ellesmere more work would need to be taken "very soon".
