Exclusive: NFDA on this week’s General Election

  01 July 2024

Retailers have “clearly communicated their priorities to the next government” and delivered seven key ‘asks’, says the NFDA, ahead of the General Election this Thursday.

In a statement, which Auto Retail Agenda exclusively saw ahead of launch, chief executive Sue Robinson said that key issues include the ongoing skills shortage and restimulating the private EV market, calling them “immediate challenges that the incoming government will need to address.

“With the industry demonstrating remarkable resilience over the past few years, NFDA urges the next government to work closely with us and the broader industry to tackle the concerns of dealerships and further unleash the potential of this dynamic sector.”

The NFDA is using its General Election statement, which will officially be launched today (Monday 1 July), to remind the next government that auto retailers employ 78% of the 758k people working in UK automotive, which sees a turnover of £100bn.
