Derek Vaughan MEP, Mark Tami MP and Carl Sargeant AM have called for the UK Government to listen to Airbus’ warning about an EU exit.

Airbus Chief Robin Southwell this week put forward his firm support for the UK remaining in the EU.

Derek Vaughan MEP said

“Airbus employs 6000 people in Deeside and Mr Southwell is correct to point out the benefits of the EU single market.

 “Trading with the EU supports millions of British jobs and keeps thousands of British businesses afloat. Leaving the EU would put all of this at risk.

 “The UK Government must listen to Airbus and other businesses such as Ford who value Wales’ connection with the EU.”

Carl Sargeant AM said

“Airbus plays a vital role in our economy here in Deeside and is one of our region’s major success stories – it is a world leader in the aviation industry and we are extremely lucky to have it right here on our doorstep.

 “The company’s determination to build on its already significant achievements is putting Deeside and North Wales as a whole firmly on the international map.

Mark Tami MP added

“An exit from the European Union would be devastating for the UK, Wales and especially Alyn and Deeside.

 Airbus offers so many jobs to the local area, not only directly but indirectly with all the local suppliers that work in connection with Airbus.
