British 'Cash For Clunkers' to get extension
BBC News is reporting that Lord Mandelson and the UK government is extending the program, noting that the island's economy was on the upswing but growth in manufacturing is still fragile. Labor unions, the auto industry, UK Steel, the Manufacturing Technologies Association and British Plastics Federation have all been requesting that the program be extended, as steady vehicle sales mean more stable job situations. Beyond the UK's version of Cash for Clunkers, Lord Mandelson has reportedly also said that the government will stand behind workers at Vauxhall, Jaguar and Land Rover plants affected by the auto industry slowdown.
