Future Free Trade Agreements (21 Feb 2019)

Andrew Griffiths: The hon. Lady mentioned businesses that are not prepared to go on the record. I quote: “This is not a Brexit-related issue for us”, and this decision is “being made” on the basis of “global…changes”—those are the words of Ian Howells, Honda’s senior vice-president for Europe.

Sainsbury and Asda Merger (30 Apr 2018)

Andrew Griffiths: ...he talks about. We want to make sure that employees’ voices are heard and that there is proper engagement over the merger. It is clear, though, that in no way is this a response to Brexit. These are businesses based in the UK and competing in the UK, and the business will continue to be listed on the London stock exchange post the merger. I recognise the hon. Gentleman’s concerns,...

Taylor Review (7 Feb 2018)

Andrew Griffiths: I wondered how long it would be before we got on to the “B” word, Brexit. I know that my hon. Friend is hugely concerned about that, as are businesses large and small up and down the country. He will have to wait a little bit longer, I am afraid.
