Nissan to review UK investment stance once Brexit terms are clear

It was revealed today that Nissan is to review its UK investment strategy once Brexit terms are made clear.


Any questions at all about the future of Nissan in Sunderland potentially threatens thousands of jobs in my constituency and across the North East.

What this news shows is that the Prime Minister’s speech on Tuesday, saying that Britain will leave the Single Market and Customs Union, was a game-changer.

It will have a real impact on UK manufacturing, putting peoples’ livelihoods at risk. The Government are gambling with the futures of the people of Sunderland.

The Prime Minister’s decision was a political choice, not an inevitability. She needs to go back to the drawing board and do what is best for Sunderland and for our whole car industry – staying in the Single Market and the Customs Union.
