McLaren CEO says post-Brexit UK must try to influence EU car rules

Automotive News Europe reports remarks from McLaren Automotive's Mike Flewitt about the importance of retaining the benefits of having uniform technical legislation for vehicles after the UK leaves the European Union. Failure to do so might lead to having to comply with two sets of rules - exactly the sort of problem that we solved by joining the European Community, especially with the completion of the single market in 1992.

Special rules on emissions for low-volume manufacturers, of which the UK has more than other EU countries (perhaps more than all of them put together), are seen as a particular issue. Will the "rump" EU be as keen to give McLaren and similar companies a good deal after we have gone? That's a rhetorical question.

He also elaborated on steps that the company is taking to mitigate the effects of immigration controls, boosting its graduate recruitment scheme.
