BRUSSELS, Feb. 23.
All makes of Morris cars, with the exception of Riley and Wolseley, will be assembled in Belgium from the early summer.
Morris cars are now imported fully-built or from assembly plants in Holland. The Belgian firm, Beherman-Demoen, already holding similar contracts for Standard-Triumph and Borgward, will assemble the cars at Wilrijck, near Antwerp, under a contract which provides for delivery to begin on August 1.
Meanwhile, in Birmingham, a B.M.C. spokesman confirmed that these Nuffield products were to be assembled by Beherman-Demoen and added that the corporation looked upon the new contract as a further step in its efforts to build up Common Market trade.
