Jaguar Land Rover plant may get reprieve, paper says

The newspaper said, citing JLR sources, that a final decision could rest on talks with the government about financial assistance for new models.

It said new management brought in by Indian owners Tata Motors was considering a business plan that would see both the Jaguar and Land Rover marques launch models and increase production and could need all three British plants kept open.

Tata said in September it would combine the JLR plants in Solihull and Castle Bromwich in central England and decide on which one would be closed in the first half of 2010. At that time, it said there would be no compulsory lay offs.

JLR could not immediately be reached for comment.
