From The BBC:
Carmaker Land Rover has said it will cut production by one day a week as it reacts to slower world economic growth.
The company said it will now make Land Rover and Discovery vehicles on four days a week, from Monday to Thursday.
It added that the vehicle production changes would take place immediately, and that it would also suspend some night shifts starting from October.
There will be no redundancies from the changes, which will affect Land Rover’s plant in Solihull, West Midlands.
Earlier this year, Indian carmarker Tata bought Land Rover and Jaguar for £1.7bn from US producer Ford.
A spokesman said the cut in output would reduce a “very small” percentage of annual production.
Even so, he added that conditions were “very challenging” in the UK and US.
