Lux­ury car mak­ers’ Brexit fear

Daily Record - - NEWS -

AS­TON Martin say they may have to halt pro­duc­tion if there is a no-deal Brexit.

Chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer Mark Wil­son said the im­pact of leav­ing the EU with­out a trade agree­ment would be “semi-cat­a­strophic”.

New cars built in the UK are tested by the Ve­hi­cle Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Agency and can then be sold across the EU.

But man­u­fac­tur­ers told the Com­mons busi­ness com­mit­tee yes­ter­day this set-up will cease if Brexit hap­pens with­out a deal.
