All well and good, but the UK government can as such only give promises to Nissan for the period after
the UK leaves the EU if it wishes to avoid any possibility of contravening the EU rules on illegal state aid.
Although it wouldn't surprise me if the basic WTO trading rules also include limitations on the amount of state aid that private companies can receive.
Edit : as may any post Brexit agreement with the EU.
So long and thanks for all the fish...
