Following the Ministerial Statement on Legislating for the UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union, Roberta took the opportunity to ask the Brexit Secretary, David Davis MP, about the future of businesses in the North East.

Focusing on the Secretary of State’s point that businesses can continue to operate knowing that the rules have not changed, Roberta asked him how he was going to ensure that businesses, such as Nissan and Hitachi, will still have opportunities to grow following our departure from the EU. Roberta also questioned him on how he would ensure that workers’ rights will be protected in the future.
