Sep 19 2017

We are going to produce something they are not. Theirs will be more high volume and not what the Defender used to be.feedback

Sep 19 2017

The UK needs to arrest this decline in manufacturing but it has to make economic sense to build it here.feedback

Sep 19 2017

We're running a competition for the name but it's like a child - you need to see it before you name it.feedback

Sep 19 2017

We absolutely want the government involved and we have an emotional attachment to the UK, but we cannot let that override the economics.feedback

Sep 19 2017

We are not afraid of manufacturing challenges and I think the UK does need a few manufacturing challenges. In an ideal world we would like to build it in the UK, which is obviously its heritage. But it has to make economic sense and we have had a surprising amount of interest from the continent using existing facilities. You would have to build a new facility in the UK.feedback

Maybe it's a little bit arrogant for a chemical company to think it can produce a world-class 4x4 but we have the confidence that we can manufacture things. We're very prevalent in Germany. We have a lot of German engineers and a great respect for German engineering. I think there will be a step change in the quality of this vehicle.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Toyota

Workers' skills are a challenge in the UK – not an insurmountable challenge – but you would need to train a complete workforce in the UK. Nissan have done it and Toyota have done it in Derby but if you go to places like Germany, you've got a trained workforce. It was the world's most famous car. It conquered the planet in many ways. It was the world's best off-road vehicle – not the most reliable – and we lamented its demise two years ago when Jaguar Land Rover said it was stopping production. It's 67 years old but it still looks cool today.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - British Petroleum

The Forties pipeline system is a UK strategic asset and was originally designed to work together to feed the Grangemouth refinery and petrochemical facilities. We have a strong track record of acquiring non-core assets improving their efficiency and reliability, securing long term employment and investment.feedback

There simply is insufficient raw material (oil and gas) coming out of the North Sea to run Grangemouth so we're talking about 10,000 jobs in total that depend on that facility. So were it not for the shale gas that we're bringing in from the U.S., Grangemouth would have closed three years ago.feedback
