Labour calls for all manufacturers to get same deal as Nissan

It comes amid mounting speculation the Government gave a compensation deal to the company as the executive of the Japanese car giant met Theresa May earlier this week in Downing Street.  On Thursday business minister Greg Clark refused six times to say what post-Brexit financial help Nissan has been promised to build its new cars at its flagship Sunderland plant, reports The Independent.

Two former business ministers, who have negotiated with the company previously, have said they believe Nissan must have been told Britain would remain a part of the EU customs union or offered some sort of mitigation to announce it would continue to invest.
