    Local Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate Richard Dickson has called on JLR (Jaguar Landrover) to reverse its decision not to meet with any of the General Election candidates for Kenilworth and Southam in the run up to the election on 7th May.

    In October last year, JLR - which employs more than 2,500 people at its site in Gaydon in the constituency - said that it would be arranging prior to the Election for a briefing event to be held for all local Parliamentary candidates. Such an event would have ensured that each of the candidates would have been aware of the importance of JLR as an employer in the constituency, and as one of the UK's most successful engineering businesses. It would also give the candidates the opportunity to discuss with JLR how it is working to fulfil its local corporate social responsibilities.
