AXE THREAT TO CAR PART FIRM

Austin Rover got tough with parts supplier Lucas yesterday and threatened to switch to another component firm. The harsh warning came as the State-owned car giant was forced to lay off more than 3,000 workers because of a shortage of parts.

Industrial action by workers at Lucas Electrical is holding up deliveries of parts and production of several Austin Rover models has been halted. Suppliers from Europe and Japan could now be asked to take over from Lucas.
