My right hon. Friend will know that, sadly, Honda today also announced the closure of its plant in Turkey. Given that Turkey is, and will remain, part of the customs union, does he not agree that we should be careful about accepting the advice of those such as Rebecca Long Bailey that we, too, should join the customs union, as that would clearly have made no difference to Honda’s decision?
