British Prime Minister Theresa May`s Brexit plans include specific proposals to protect jobs in industries using so-called "just-in-time" supply chains, her spokesman said after the boss of Jaguar Land Rover warned of possible job losses.
Ralf Speth told a conference in Birmingham, central England, on Tuesday that JLR had lost a thousand jobs as a result of diesel policy "and those numbers will be counted in the tens of thousands if we do not get the right Brexit deal".
May`s spokesman told reporters: "The Chequers plan includes specific proposals to protect jobs in industries like the car industry that depend on just-in-time supply chains."
He said May`s proposals for a common rule book would "help ensure frictionless trade with the EU and would see our car sector to continue to flourish".
