THE Government played a key role in ensuring Nissan’s new Note was built in the North-East and not abroad, a senior Government minister has said.

Business minister Michael Fallon says a £9.3m investment from the Government’s flagship Regional Growth Fund was integral to keeping the factory’s production line rolling.

Mr Fallon, who visited Nissan’s Sunderland plant to see work officially start on the Note project, said the cash reflected the Government’s commitment to North-East jobs and the region’s economy, which was started by Baroness Thatcher about 30 years ago.

The former Darlington MP joined Prime Minister David Cameron for the launch of the all-electric Nissan Leaf in March, and said the company’s Sunderland’s plant was vitally important to the renaissance of the UK car industry.
