Nissan have warned of the threat to car production in Sunderland because of a botched, disorderly Brexit.
Commenting, Bridget Phillipson MP, leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:
"These latest warnings from Nissan will set alarm bells ringing across the North East. If the botched Brexit that's being pushed by the Government leads to lost manufacturing jobs in my region or in other parts of the UK, it will not be forgiven or forgotten.
"The Government cannot continue to play politics with people's jobs and livelihoods. No-one voted for a Brexit deal that decimates our highly skilled automotive sector, or other manufacturing industries.
"Warnings like these from major employers like Nissan only strengthen the case for a People's Vote at the end of the Brexit process."
