Govt letter to Nissan reveals Brexit promises

The Business Secretary promised Nissan in 2016 that supporting carmakers would be “a critical priority” in the Brexit talks, in a previously confidential letter released by the company after it abandoned plans to produce a new model in Sunderland.  Responding to the release of the letter to the Financial Times, Best for Britain boss Eloise Todd said:

"This £80 million 'Brexit Bung' has been hidden from the public for years. The government have promised and promised to release this letter to Nissan but they couldn't bring themselves to do it and now we can see why. As Nissan make a U-turn and say sayonara to building the X-trail in Sunderland, the government is left deeply embarrassed.

"This Brexit bribe has come back to bite the government."
