The shadow Secretary of State, Christina Rees, has sought to blame Brexit for Ford’s decision, but Stuart Rowley, the European President of Ford, has said in terms that it has nothing to do with Brexit. He has also said that

“if Brexit had never happened, would there be a different decision, and the answer to that is no.”
