Honda Motor Co Ltd said on Wednesday it had temporarily halted production at its British factory because of transport-related delays that have cause a shortage of parts. "The situation is currently being monitored with a view to re-start production as soon as possible," Honda said in a statement. A spokesman declined to say whether the issue was related to Brexit.
