Honda said on Tuesday that possible parts shortages might result in the Japanese automaker needing to temporarily stop the production at its British factory, where it builds the Civic car, because of transport-related delays.

“Whilst a number of measures are being taken to mitigate any disruption, there could be a temporary pause to production to enable any supply issue to be resolved,” the automaker said in a statement.

The spokesperson for the company did not immediately mention whether the issue was associated with Brexit.

Discussions between the UK and the European Union to strike a free trade deal by the end of the year have been unsuccessful until now with companies warning about the risk of severe disruption if no agreement takes place.

Transport between the UK and mainland Europe is likely to experience disruption even if there is an agreement before the transitional arrangements expire at the end of 2020.

Honda’s southern English Swindon factory built just under 110,000 cars in 2019 is due to set to close permanently next year.
