PRIME MINISTER Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn clashed over the news that Honda is planning to close down its factory at PMQs yesterday.

The leader of the opposition accused the prime minister of causing uncertainty for investors in the UK by not ruling out no-deal Brexit.

Mr Corbyn asked: “Thousands of car workers in Derby, Sunderland, Birmingham and Swindon are facing redundancy, does that not matter to the prime minister?”

But Mrs May insisted that the closures had nothing to do with Brexit, she replied: “We have seen decisions by car manufacturers and obviously the decision made this week by Honda is disappointing. But they have been clear that this decision has nothing to do with Brexit, it is to do with the changes taking place to the global car market.”

Mr Corbyn dismissed this stating that she wasn’t listening to companies that say they want a customs union with the EU.

He said: “Investment in the car industry last year halved, Brexit uncertainty has hurt investment.

“Where investment is cut today, jobs are cut tomorrow!”

The prime minister argued that that the the only way to stop uncertainty was to back the Withdrawal Agreement, which she claimed the car industry did.
