County council leader responds to BMW comments on Brexit

Statement in response to BMW comments on Brexit by Councillor Ian Hudspeth, Leader of Oxfordshire County Council:

“We recently celebrated 100 years of car making in Oxford and I want to make sure it has an equally long future ahead. In Oxfordshire we have developed an exciting specialism in autonomous vehicles and other smart transport solutions.

"BMW has already said it would make electric Minis in Cowley and we will do everything we can to ensure that happens. I will be working with the City Council to offer any support we can to the company and its staff so they can look forward to a bright future in Oxfordshire.”
