Carmichael – Business, Parliament and the public have a right to know what assurances were given to Nissan

Responding to Greg Clark’s statement on Nissan in the House of Commons this afternoon, Neil Carmichael MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“I am delighted by Nissan’s decision to continue investing in Britain. But other automotive firms, companies in other industries, Parliament and the people have a right to know what assurances were made to Nissan.

“If they were promised financial compensation for possible tariffs, taxpayers must be told. If the Government is telling selected businesses more about its negotiating strategy than the public, then voters have a right to know.

“The Government’s great success should not be incompatible with public scrutiny. They should release correspondence with Nissan to reassure taxpayers, voters and the rest of our economy.”
