Save Ryton factory, MPs demand

PEUGEOT has received a letter from 107 MPs urging it to reprieve its doomed Ryton car plant.

In a letter to The Times, the MPs said: ‘We believe it is incumbent on Peugeot to at least enter negotiations on the trade union plan to save the Ryton plant.’

The union plan is to continue production on one shift at the factory until 2009, and then build a new model intended for Peugeot’s Slovakian plant.

Peugeot has offered to meet union official on July 4 to explain why it must close the plant.
