No love for auto industry in Coalition's manufacturing policy
Sadly, does this election result mean the end of Holden manufacturing in Australia?Tony Abbott has announced the Coalition's manufacturing policy, and there's no extra funding for the ailing car sector. It's an area of key difference between the two major parties, because Labor has promised an extra $700 million to help keep Holden and Ford afloat. Mr Abbott won't match it because he says he won't run around with a blank cheque before an election. Mr Abbott also stepped back from a promise not to make any front bench changes if elected.
