After Nissan, What Now?

However, this security does not come without its cost. Nissan, among other things, wanted guaranteed compensation for costs related to any new trade tariffs resulting from Brexit. The government has not confirmed if they guaranteed this money, nor have they confirmed anything else that they have promised Nissan–and we know that Nissan were also concerned about access to the Single Market and maintaining freedom of movement for its workers.
The public deserves to know the terms of this deal; as the public have almost certainly paid for it. In the long term, it does the North East and the country as a whole little good if a deal like this may only be available for one company, conditions unknown. Jobs in Sunderland matter, but so do jobs in Hartlepool and Newcastle and Berwick. I want all of my constituents to be protected, and I want all of their jobs to be secure.
