Trade body calls on gov to engage with sector more amid fears for industry future
The UK automotive industry will be jeopardised without free access to the European single market, the RMI fears.

The Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) is calling on the government to engage with the industry.

Speaking at the annual RMI dinner on 19 October, RMI Chairman Peter Johnson said: “It is vital that the government encourages both economic and consumer confidence and enables investment, in order for the retail motor industry to progress and thrive in a stable environment.

“The UK’s automotive sector is a global leader and the future state and success of the industry could be jeopardised if a trade deal is not secured to allow tariff free access to the European single market, following our vote to leave the EU.

“It is now essential that the government makes a commitment to outline a clear negotiating position in order to ensure our industry has what it needs to secure its future success.”

Political journalist Andrew Neil was the guest speaker at this year’s RMI dinner.
