Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown speaking in Coventry today

Gordon Brown is in Coventry today on the general election campaign trail.

The former Prime Minister and Labour leader will visit the Jaguar Land Rover site and speak around lunchtime.

“Tomorrow I visit two great, historic centres of British manufacturing which are being forgotten and sidelined by the Conservatives’ hard-line position on Brexit,” he wrote in the Mirror yesterday.

“In Coventry I will meet some of the 8,000 workers who depend on our world-beating Jaguar Land Rover models.

“Then later, in Wirral I will meet Ellesmere Port workers whose future has been thrown into question by the takeover of General Motors by Peugeot Citroen despite their high levels of productivity.”
