Where there is slippage, it is not a matter of order for the chair, it is a matter for a backbench member to continue to raise the matter.

The technology is likely to be only available on higher-spec models with features such as blind spot assist, around view monitor and automatic parking, so expect it to feature on Tekna cars and above. Depending on Nissan’s strategy with the Tekna+ though, it could be reserved for this model to push people into the range-topper. Despite last year’s uncertainty about Nissan’s Sunderland plant building the best-seller, production is confirmed to remain there, alongside its Juke and X-Trail SUV siblings. Nissan hopes that the Qashqai will continue its winning streak as the best-selling SUV in the UK ; it achieved this in 2016 with 62,682 registered across the year, although ever fiercer competition, such as the Seat Ateca , threaten its position as the fifth best-seller overall. A Nissan spokesman couldnt give any further details, but Nissan confirmed at last year’s show that the car will come this year.

The Prime Minister also maintained that the UK would continue to be a "reliable partner" and seek to continue trade relationships as freely as possible, although what this will entail is yet to be negotiated. However the UK digital industry, which employs 1.56 million people and represents 10% of the economy, relies on the EU for 43% of digital exports, with Germany, France and Italy consistently among the top 7 highest export destinations for UK. "The crux for tech will be about building a bridge between membership of the single market and a future free trade agreement," said techUK deputy CEO, Antony Walker. "The UK tech sector is highly integrated with suppliers and customers across Europe and depends everyday on laws and regulations set at European level." While praising the Prime Minister's objective to reach an agreement on a future partnership within two years, techUK said businesses would remain "realistic about the difficulty of achieving this within these timescales".
