Holding answer received on 05 September 2018

There were no Ministerial meetings with BMW during May or June. I visited Airbus’ Filton facility with my hon. Friend the Member for Filton and Bradley Stoke on 21 June, but announcements relating to the UK leaving the EU were not discussed.

Although officials met regularly with Airbus and BMW in the normal course of business during May and June, neither company discussed at these meetings their announcements relating to EU Exit ahead of making them. Their announcements were subsequently discussed in meetings between officials and the companies.
