Solihull Liberal Democrat MP Lorely Burt has welcomed Jaguar Land Rover's announcement that the company will create 1,300 jobs at its Solihull plant.
The new jobs will follow £1.5 billion of investment at the site, allowing the manufacture of the F-PACE, a Jaguar SUV with an aluminium body.
Mrs Burt said, "The Lib Dems in government have taken some very tough decisions and I'm glad to see this further sign that the economy is back on track.
"This is a big vote of confidence in our area by Jaguar Land Rover - a world-beating brand with a heart that beats in Solihull.
"I'm delighted that the very latest technology is being added to our proud manufacturing history.
"It has been a pleasure working in government to support Jaguar Land Rover in their remarkable success story."
