Responding to the article by the Chairman of Hitachi warning about the consequences of a vote to leave the EU, Phil Wilson MP for Sedgefield and regional campaign co-ordinator of Labour in for Britain campaign said:

“The words of the Hitachi chairman, Mr Nakanishi, should come as a warning to those promoting the Leave campaign. Hitachi has made the biggest private sector investment in the North East since Nissan. The train building factory is in my constituency because of the brilliant local workforce and because the UK is the gateway to Europe. It would be a tragedy if the UK votes to leave the EU and put all the investment at risk.

“The leave campaigners are not acting in the best interest of the North East economy. What they are promoting is economic madness. I, and others, worked long and hard to ensure Hitachi came to the North East. I want to see the company stay for the long-term and expand creating more jobs, skills and prosperity. That can only happen if we remain part of the EU.”
