LONDON (Reuters) - Jaguar Land Rover (TAMO.NS) said it had agreed with unions to adjourn pay talks after a weak recent performance caused by a more difficult market in China, consumer confusion about diesel emission regulations and uncertainty around Brexit.

The company, which is owned by India’s Tata Motors (TAMO.NS), said in a joint statement with unions it would reconvene the talks when it had further clarity on market conditions and the outcome of Brexit.

“We jointly believe that, at this moment in time, this is the most sensible approach and will help to protect both the business and our workforce,” it said on Tuesday.
